Potluck Dinner & Applicant Meet-and-Greet

Rosewood Co-op, 1165 San Bernard St., Austin, TX 78702

Wednesday, April 1st, 8:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Please RSVP to housing.rosewoodcoop@gmail.com

Rosewood Co-Op has a room opening coming up in May, 2015! We have weekly potluck dinners on Wednesdays, and we’re inviting folks interested in our May opening to take a tour of the house, meet some of our members, and share some food on Wed., April 1st.  We’ll choose the new member mid-April, so it’s a good plan to make time to visit early in the month. This will be a great opportunity to learn about our application process and how the house [co]operates.

In addition to the Potluck Dinner & Meet-and-Greet on Wednesday, potential applicants should come to a Monday meeting. It’s another chance to experience what life in the co-op is all about and to make connections with current members. We’ll tell you about it over dinner.

You can learn more about our house, membership expectations, and room rates on our Membership FAQ page.  Sorry, but we are not considering out-of-town applications.  Future opportunities to visit the house will be posted on our blog.  Please subscribe to housing updates to stay informed. And please email us with questions or scheduling conflicts so that we might accommodate you.

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

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.
