Bosch Co-op is an age/gender/orientation diverse community of five living in an old Victorian house in an urban inner-city neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We are all concerned with social and economic justice. We are queer-friendly, tolerant, inclusive, and affirming of each other's lifestyles. We share vegetarian and organic food and are active members of our local food co-op. We make decisions by consensus and all contribute our labor into keeping our house and our community going. We're all friendly, down-to-earth folks; feel free to contact or visit us.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
