Intentionally Welcoming Communities

Farley Center has partnered with the “Intentionally Welcoming Community” group as they help create a community at Union Corners in Madison, WI  welcomes LGBT and others through a co-housing and development project.

To launch the community’s efforts, a number of  artists and groups have put together an outdoor art installation that will be up starting in May and on into the summer. Here at the Farley Center, we brought together our farmers and friends for an afternoon of artmaking to create our part of the art installation. Come see what we created.
