LIVE TINY MEETING 11/30/15 at the Bean Cycle
5 of us met to talk about the latest progress on the Tiny House Village at Bonnie Farm project. Tanja and Randy went to consult with a Grey Rock resident about the project. Randy is continuing to connect with various key allies. This week the people moving forward on the project will meet to create a mission statement and discuss further. They are looking for an architect to do a rendering of the village to take to the city. Others in the group are welcome to attend these meetings if they are interest.
