Monthly Meeting: Sociocracy and The Rocky Corner Project

In October of 2018 Marie Pulito introduced us to co-housing and told us about the Rocky Corner project (http://rockycorner.org/) in Bethany. The project was so fascinating that we only got to the first part, explaining cohousing. On Monday, May 18, Marie is going to tell us the rest of the story. Community participation and self-management are hallmarks of co-housing. The self-governance model that Rocky Corner chose is called sociocracy. (If you want to read about sociocracy ahead of time, go to www.sociocracyforall.org.)

Marie Pulito is a nurse and a future resident of Rocky Corner cohousing which she has been helping to create since 2006.

We will start with brief announcements at 7:00 PM. The main program will begin immediately afterward.
