PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This April marks the 25th year of the "OnGoing Community". Activated by two women with the foresight of a neighborhood where food justice, affordable housing, permaculture and goats were the latches holding together what is now a resilient and tightly woven basket of neighbors, animals and bikes. The future vision holds true to its roots while attempting to creatively respond to the changing climate of urbanity while focusing its strengths on housing accessibility, emergency preparedness, and food production. The Going street artery is a major bike thoroughfare and offers a wonderfully safe environment for kids, elders and retired kidz. We raise goats, are a part of a 5-house-twice/wk dinner program, grow hundreds of pounds of food, host events, practice permaculture and general urban guerilla planting tomfoolery. Come play! We will be hosting a Faerie Haus building workshop for all ages.
