Film screening: WITHIN REACH. Journey to Find Sustainable Community.

Sponsored by Cohousing California & COREcommons

 

7:00pm – Doors open

7:30pm – Film: Within Reach

9:00pm – Post-film discussion with Mandy Creighton, Cyclist and Executive Producer

 

WITHIN REACH explores one couple’s pedal-powered search for a place to call home. Mandy and Ryan gave up their jobs, cars and traditional houses to “bikepack” 6,500 miles for nearly 2 years around the USA seeking sustainable community.

Rather than looking in a traditional neighborhood, they begin to recognize that community is the secret ingredient to living sustainably on this planet. Along the way, they explored 100 Ecovillages, Cohousing Communities, Co-op Houses, Communes, Transition Towns and their own principles and commitment. In the end they return to the timeless truth that community is people; they are everywhere; and there is room for everyone.

Communities they explored include: The Establishment Co-op, Regen Coops, LA Ecovillage, Sonora Cohousing, Transition Alpine TX, The Farm, Earthaven Ecovillage, Cobb Hill Cohousing, Ecovillage at Ithaca, Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, Possibility Alliance, Joyful Path Meditation and Healing Center, Greensburg GreenTown and Hummingbird Community.

Both their journey and their film have answered the question that they and many others are asking: How can we pass along a lush, beautiful, sustainable world to future generations? After circling the country and interviewing hundreds of Americans, they have found that by reaching within, sustainable community is Within Reach. In fact, it’s already here.

    I came to meeting address but no one's here and door is locked. Not a good first experience.

      Oops. If I would just read more thoroughly, I would have seen earlier that it was on Mission not Market Street.

      Jan, it was great to see you here - glad you found us. I've made the same mistake myself in Berkeley, between Solano and Marin

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
