    Anyone I can contact about the Sunday morning session about community? I just saw “co-housing” in the description, and while new to Loving More, I am a 13 year veteran of 2 cohousing communities, as well as a life-long student of community, its generation, startup support, required background skills, it’s modeling, and sustainability. Would love to help out!
