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!
The outside still looks like an abandoned building. We are so grateful to be here, and it feels perfect to be working from a not yet finished place; this building is a wonderful metaphor for our work.
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.
History of the house:
The house was an abandoned building for 17 years and is 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. When it is finished later in 2012, the building will provide 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.
