Skylark Housing Co-operative consits of seven adults and three dogs. On the 1st March 2013 we bought our semi-detached house. Its an ex-council house on the edge of the downs, in Bevendean. In our large garden our fig tree produces wonderfully and we grow some veg and herbs. Bevendean has a vibrant community scene with the first co-operative pub on a council estate opening soon, a plethora of other housing co-operatives, a community garden and a fruit and nut orchard in the works. All of us at Skylark are involved in activism in some way and so we are aware of the times we need to offer each other support or a chocolate brownie. We have been involved in environmentalism, animal rights, rape crisis, legal support, anti-fascism and The Cowley Club. Its not all graft though and members can also be found knitting, massaging, drawing, making music, doing self defence, tattooing, and studying.
