Since we are consensus we all have to like you
There are 4 parts to a good co-oper
1. Can you pay bills on time?
2. Can you be responsible for your community duties and chores?
3. Are you always willing to grow and communicate?
4. Are you self motivated?
Send us a fb message or email letting us know these things as well as your desires and expectations living in a cooperative.
To listen, love, learn and act!
We are one of the 8 community cooperative here in Austin Texas. Our focus is on environmental sustainability and community building. We are governed through consensus process and highly value communication. Roots was founded by 10 activists out of the Occupy movement and takes a strong political and social stance for equality by gaining awareness of societal generated oppression and creating a new standard for non-hierarchical relationships.
We have a few raised bed gardens, a hugelmound, wicking beds and an aquaponics system. Cats, dogs, people, chickens and the occasional guinea fowl and turkey live here. We are renters who all have different hopes and dreams. Some of us wish to acquire land and some wish to integrate into other types of societies, cultures and cooperatives. Our current goal is to open up the passions of each other with the freedom of expression and allow each individual to blossom while creating a stronger blueprint of how a coop should walk and talk.
