About

MISSION

Radical Living is an asset-based community organization (501c3) that aims to build community around food, sustainable practices, and green spaces by supporting resident-led efforts to increase healthy food options, educate residents about their role in the food system, and reconnect residents to food, earth, and each other.

VISION

Radical Living envisions a sustainable society that lives in harmony with the earth’s ecology and protects the living world on which it depends; a world where the systems of power and domination that threaten and marginalize whole segments of society are dismantled; where black and brown and all children, poor and working poor families, the LGBTQ community, and all immigrants, are valued and strengthened to meaningfully participate in a beloved world community.

HISTORY

Formed in 2015, Radical Living grew out of a Christian cohousing community founded by Vonetta and Jason Storbakken. The community was organized as a church plant under the auspices of the  Mennonite Church USA, a denomination oriented toward peace and social justice, non-violent resistance, and faith formation as key themes of Christian witness.
