If you can get an easy to remember URL on the T-shirt that would
give people a no committment way of finding out more.  Some people
are inhibited about approaching you and asking.  Or they may not
have time or opportunity when they see you.

With a bit of effort you should be able to get something like    That is some URL shorteners allow custom urls. being one of the best known.

You may want to have it printed:
On the web at

Note that in this case you DO NOT need the "http://"; part since to
use it a human would have to type it into the browser location bar.

Alternately you might include something like
"search for us on the web - iowa city cohousing"

Note that there is a big tradeoff between the amount you put on
a T-shirt and the font size and the readability.
And please avoid "cute" handwritten like fonts that are hard to read.
