hub posterThe HUB Housing Cooperative is a building that we bought in 2005, which is divided into 6 different apartments.  Our community is currently comprised of 11 people, 5 cats, 4 dogs, and more than 20 bikes. We enjoy cycling, biking, community activism, science fiction, courtyard grill outs, brunches, movie nights, and pie. We’re on Facebook too. Come see us soon!

    My name is Lucia Tuman. I’m a horse trainer and sustainable gardener who has worked and lived at several farms & co-ops in San Francisco, Ca and Santa Cruz, Ca. I’m currently doing a semester of school at Triton community college before I plan to head back to farm living this summer.

    I am really interested in the Chicago sustainable and co-op living scene. I am currently doing interviews and profiles of local co-ops and urban farms/ gardens to include in documentary I am putting together about alternative lifestyles and cleaner living. I want to show people that it really is a possibility, that there are lots of people living happily and healthily in cooperative situations, its so much more than the typical “free love” scene that comes to mind when you mention a “co-op” to most people. I want to showcase different ways people are getting creative with urban agriculture (one of my major passions).

    If this is something your co-op would be interested in participating in, please let me know. Basically, I would just like to come spend a day at the co-op, see what you guys are about, talk with some members, and get some video footage.

    If you have any more questions, please feel free to email me or call me. Thank you for taking the time to read this and look forward to hearing back!

    Very respectfully,

    Lucia Tuman

    I’m a video artist and environmental activist living in Chicago, and I’m very interested in cooperative living. I’m potentially interested in buying a unit in your building. I’d love to meet with some of the current co-op members to talk about joining or to at least learn more about the co-op. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
