Portland is alive with organized communities and neighborhoods that are once again reaping the benefits of working with multiple age cohorts in our homes and our neighborhoods. Together we will investigate how such communities are supporting our children in the home and community and the benefits of living and learning in an intergenerational society.
This workshop is part of our 2012-2013 Workshop Series.
Instructor: Libby Hinze, B.A.
