Experience Hundredfold Farm--A Place to Grow! **It's not too late to sign up for the "Experience Hundredfold" weekend! The Hundredfold Farm Cohousing Community cordially invites you to spend a weekend with us. If you have ever envisioned living in an intentional community but weren’t quite sure if such a life was right for you, here is a chance to “join” and test drive a cohousing community for a weekend. Other than the cost of your travel to our farm, it will not cost you a cent. This weekend is on us. Life is short, give us a test run and see if living in a cohousing community is for you. If you can't spend the night, come for the day. Feeling shy?, bring a friend! Help spread the word about this event by sharing this notice with others.** **The "Experience Hundredfold" weekend is an opportunity for interested people to experience a “weekend in the life” of Hundredfold Farm. While the schedule of activities is compressed into a couple of days, each activity is a sampling of the type of work and play that are a part of life in our community. As a member of Hundredfold Farm for the weekend, we hope you will partake in all the scheduled activities but we also want you to feel welcome to pick and choose which activity to participate in depending on your interests and abilities.** **Participation in this “weekend in the life” event is by invitation only and a reservation is required. We are intentionally limiting the number of participants to ensure that all of our guests have an intimate experience and do not get lost in a crowd. Most importantly, we want all of our guests to feel at home at Hundredfold Farm.** **If you have questions or would like to make a reservation for this special weekend, please call Bill at 717-321-0004 or email info [at] hundredfoldfarm.org.** **Experience Hundredfold Weekend Schedule** **Friday, May 4, 2018** **6pm + Early Arrivals** **Limited overnight accommodations for early arrivals.

The cohousing model we use is characterized by private dwellings, clustered housing, pedestrian friendly design, extensive common facilities, and collective decision-making. Additionally, cohousing communities are generally funded, designed and managed by their residents.** **Additional information about Hundredfold Farm can be found at: http://www.hundredfoldfarm.org ** The Hundredfold Farm Community | 1400 Evergreen Way | Orrtanna, PA 17353 | 717-321-0004
