Rosewood Co-Op has a room opening up in April 2015! Anyone interested in applying for membership is asked to attend a Membership Orientation to take a tour of the house, learn about our application process and house procedures, and meet our members.

Our next Membership Orientation will be held on Monday, February 9th, 2015 from 8:00pm – 8:30pm.  Please arrive on time. Following the Membership Orientation, we will have our Weekly House Meeting. Interested applicants should stay and observe at least one meeting before being voted into the co-op. Try to make time to see how we handle things in the house.

You can learn more about us, our application process, membership expectations, and room rates on our Membership FAQ page. Sorry, but we cannot consider out-of-town applications at this time. Future opportunities to visit the house will be posted on our blog. Please subscribe to housing updates to stay informed.

At Rosewood we love making informed decisions about who we’re going live with. To do that, we need to get to know you. Come to orientation, a meeting, and a dinner. See you soon!

yardsaleThis weekend the co-op is shedding a hodgepodge of stylish second-hand clothing, mildly useful household items, and miscellaneous thrifty things to make room for new treasures and to raise funds for new projects.

Come! Peruse our cooperative and personal items to see what weird purchases we’ve made in our past lives and discover some nifty items that could grace your closet or bookshelf.

When: Sunday, Jan. 25, 11:00am – 3:00pm

Where: Rosewood Co-Op, 1165 San Bernard St., Austin, TX 78702

Looking back on the last year, it is hard to believe that only 12 months have passed. Living in our huge maze of a home – the house that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside- can be surreal. Dwelling with more than ten people at a time is an adventure and a challenge. But for all the desires and setbacks, I have to say that we have accomplished far more together (and had more fun along the way!) than any one of us could have or would have done alone.

Together we built things, agreed on ways to live together, fed ourselves, learned new skills, and partied like it was 1999 more days of the week than should be allowed for people who ought to be applying themselves. I will try to summarize some of the things we did and hope to do here, without getting too long.

On Dec. 12, the Fayetteville band Groovement (friends and guests of Rosewood Co-Op) joined other visiting and local bands, artists, and performers to raise money for Ten Thousand Villages of Austin by providing a $3 show at Swan Dive. The show raised $1,000 for the organization. Ten Thousand Villages provides a sustainable fair trade marketplace in central Texas to expand opportunities for artisans in developing countries, educate the local community, and build an intercultural understanding of fair trade practices.

Yesterday marked an important anniversary for Rosewood’s own Nick’s House Band. Here’s what they have to say:

Yesterday was exactly 1 year since our first show at Trailer Space Records! We’ve played over 100 shows since then and we are grateful to all the people who have helped support NHB in its first year of life!

Rosewood is happy to house this great band, and we can’t wait for more shows!
