The Gandhi House
We are so excited to have moved in March 2012 into our new house in Rochester’s Plymouth-Exchange (PLEX) neighborhood, at 929 S Plymouth!
If you are connected with a youth, student or community group that likes to do projects, contact us to schedule a time to come and help. We have lots to do to beautify the exterior of our ‘Gandhi House’ as well as to love the vacant lot next door.
We are so grateful to be here. This building and its history is a wonderful metaphor for our work.
History of the house:
The house was an abandoned building for 17 years and has been being lovingly restored by two friends and landlords of the Institute, David Knoll and David Skinner, along with their construction crew and a host of community helpers. The building provides space for 8-10 workers, a large community workshop space, a meditation room and more. The house is adjacent to a ¾ acre lot which is being rehabilitated to serve as an urban agriculture project as well as a meditative green space available to all.
