Enjoying the friends and foliage.
A belated announcement–since September 1, we’ve been renting two units of a triple-decker in Jamaica Plain. Six weeks later, we’ve settled in and we hosted a housewarming party last weekend. In the tumult of the house search and the move, we didn’t update this site as much as we might like, but moving forward we hope to post more about the events we host and the trips we take as a community.
Check out photos from our recent apple-picking trip to Maine.
No matter where you go there are good people everywhere and opportunity where ever you look. As long as you are willing to work hard and give back the world is yours and mine. I am still young (early 20′s) and I want to travel as much as possible before settling down in one place. As a young traveller I want to support communities where ever I go. This fall I will be living in the Boston area for about a year and I want to be a part of something bigger than just a temporary home and so living in a group equity coop with a paleo mindset is ideal. I hope to come into this new home with fresh ideas and a positive outlook so when I leave it can be enjoyed by many more down the road.
*This is a guest post by Gabriel Baldwin of sunrisecoop.org. Gabriel had just read our post Invitation to the Dead Horse Party, and wanted to share his creative plan for action. After meeting Gabriel, it was clear he not only gets it, but shares our assertion, that we must create our own movement to foster personal freedom, and health sovereignty in all areas of our lives. While Exist Anew is not a part of sunrise coop, we wanted to offer Gabriel a chance to share the cooperative project and the action he is taking to create his own freedom:
I’ve lived a paleo or “real” foods-inspired lifestyle since I was 16, and I’ve felt much healthier since! I just graduated from college in California and I’m moving to Boston in August. I don’t know may people in the area, so I’m looking forward to living in a supportive community with individuals who share my lifestyle.
I love living paleo and am enthused about living in a co-op with like-minded, warm individuals! I live paleo because it makes me feel alive, aware, energized, strong, and balanced. Through this lifestyle, I’ve reduced allergy related ailments that come with a modern, sugar overloaded, heavily processed and highly industrialized diet. I am particularly fascinated about evolution (and life in general!) and my deep curiosity has led me to pursue graduate studies in biology. I love to cook and learn new things, and I hope that the ideals of our co-op will be shared with an expanded community.
The fundRISING campaign for our new house is now live! You can help make this vision into an awesome place for people to live and hang out.
We are a thriving community of individuals whose shared intentions revolve around the paleo lifestyle. Our core values are healthy living, sustainability, respect for human diversity, and compassion for all beings. Read more about why we are doing this.
