S2 Episode 2: Ownership Sure Does Matter, with Bev Adrian of Woodlawn Terrace Cooperative

When Bev Adrian met host Paul Bradley in the early 2000s at an event called the Meredith Institute, she had no idea she was on a long path to resident ownership. Fast forward nearly 20 years and Bev is the Board President at Woodlawn Terrace Cooperative in Richfield, Minnesota, one of the newest resident-owned communities in the country. In this episode, Bev walks us through her long crazy journey to resident ownership – a journey that includes a community closure, statewide advocacy work, a “leap of faith” – purchasing a new home in a privately-owned manufactured home community – and leading her new neighbors through the cooperative purchase.
