Find­ing Com­mu­nity Through Its Homes


Variety - - Exposure | Dirt Parties Wwd Report Card Devour -

The move into a home is the mi­cro­cosm of a move into a com­mu­nity, says Greg Hol­comb. How are you go­ing to de­sign your liv­ing space? How are you go­ing to live within these walls and ex­press your­self? Now carry those ques­tions out to your com­mu­nity. How are you go­ing to ex­press your­self in your own com­mu­nity? Greg Hol­comb and Cas­san­dra Petersen be­lieve that it is at­ten­tion to com­mu­nity that lifts us all to a higher level — from the in­di­vid­ual, to the whole. It can lift us per­son­ally, com­mu­nally, or spir­i­tu­ally. A com­mu­nity that is tended to and cared for will nat­u­rally raise the value of the prop­er­ties and more im­por­tantly the over­all qual­ity of life for all who re­side there.

This is a time of great up­heaval and change. It is a chance to tend our gar­dens, lit­er­ally and philo­soph­i­cally. Af­ter the elec­tion of 2016, Greg and Cas­san­dra made a pact to do­nate to causes close to their hearts af­ter each suc­cess­ful trans­ac­tion. In 2018 alone, that has added up to over $50,000 in do­na­tions to char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions work­ing hard to bet­ter the lives of us all. From sit­ting on char­i­ta­ble boards to or­ga­niz­ing fundrais­ers, Greg and Cas­san­dra be­lieve that by work­ing to­gether we can help to re­sist the forces that work to keep us apart from one an­other. It re­ally does take a vil­lage, and we all have a part in the cre­ation of the vil­lage we live in.
