Our speaker on Friday, April 5th was Jacob Laub who discussed Rooted Northwest which is a village hub + small scale agriculture, multi-generation community  The idea comes from Denmark (co-housing program) with a small walkable village surrounded by agriculture.
 
Rooted NW sits on 240 acres of open farmland and gentle slopes in the foothills of the Cascades east of Arlington, WA. Rooted Northwest members own homes in the village and equal shares of the common buildings and agricultural land. Members can engage in expertly managed and facilitated decision-making if they feel passionate about an area and want to contribute their expertise.
 
Next Week:  Our speaker will be Mayor Brett Gailey with a State of the City update.
