As soon as all of my New York City college friends started moving out of their dorms and into Brooklyn, the word co-op entered my vocabulary.  I had heard the phrase before and not really understood what it was.  What I did know, though, was that it was a movement becoming more and more present.

I got in touch with Stephen, Aimee, and Grayson from the Brooklyn co-op TreeHaus after I saw their video on KickStarter.  They posted the video in an attempt to garner funds for their trip to NASCO (North American Students of Cooperation), and to raise funds for the documentary one of the house members is making about community living.  Their KickStarter video consisted of a little uke tune, three house members singing about community living (they have a chicken!) and I just couldn’t resist.  While our interview was fun (lots of giggles all around), it was also a really informative experience.  Check it out!
