    another event for the calendar please!
    Lunchy Brunch Potluck for Lovers of Living Together

    Sunday, December 9
    11AM – 2PM (or whenever people want to skiddadle)
    Maitri House (address provided upon RSVP)

    For communal living geeks, peoples with unmet dreams of community, and everyone in between, bring a potluck dish to share (cool points for non-chips and hummus) and come learn and explore what it means to live together. Coops, group houses, intentional communities, co-housing are all welcome!

    The plan.
    First, eating and hanging out.
    Then, group sharing. For those who live communally, what does your community do well? What needs improvement? What tools and skills do you have to share with others? For those who are interested but are not yet there, what’s your vision of the community you’d like to live with? What are your stumbling blocks to getting there?
    Finally, more hanging out. Maybe meet your future housemate??

    To RSVP or for more info, email me! karen – kleu82@gmail.com

    Sponsored by Maitri House, a residential intentional community of 17 people that values social justice, close relationships, environmental stewardship, and kids.

    Mark your calendars for the next
    * MEETING of the Mid-Atlantic Food Co-op Alliance *
    * 11:00 AM, Saturday, April 5, 2014 *
    * Greenbelt Food Co-op 121 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD 20770 *

    Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to be a MAFCA member to attend.

    Greenbelt, MD is a truly cooperative community! Join us and see the Greenbelt Food Co-op and enjoy lunch at the New Deal Co-op Cafe. Greenbelt was one of the nation’s first planned communities and once was home not only to a food co-op but also a cooperative gas station, barber shop, movie theater, beauty parlor, variety store and tobacco shop. (Here’s some interesting info from the city government: http://www.greenbeltmd.gov/DocumentCenter/View/558.)

    Today the *Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance* includes the food co-op and the cafe, as well as a credit union, nursery school, newspaper and housing development. Our guest speaker will be the Chair of the Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance. Stay tuned for more details.

    There is a DC Metro stop in Greenbelt, and lots of other public transportation options; here’s some info:

    ONE LAST THING: CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE (www.mafca.coop), & “LIKE” OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (https://www.facebook.com/MidAtlanticFoodCooperativeAlliancemafca) if you haven’t already!
