On Saturday, November 16, a 5th Anniversary presentation was held to celebrate community, dignity, and tiny ways to make our world more humane and sustainable.
There was live music, refreshments, tours of Tiny Homes, and discussions of OM Village’s past, present and future.
At the corner of North Third and East Johnson Streets, Madison, WI.
