This is the inspiring story of how a man, Reverend Jeff Obafemi Carr, is leading a small group of people who are building a community of micro homes called Infinity Village for homeless people in their neighborhood who were formerly living in tents.
For days, the group worked in a remote green space just off of Rosa Parks Boulevard, erecting tiny houses. On Friday morning they traveled by trailer down Broadway and by lunchtime a village of small, stand-alone structures assumed permanent residence at Green Street Church of Christ ready to shelter Nashville’s homeless.
Man Builds Micro Homes for Homeless People Living in Tents
With the campaign scheduled to close on April 26, 2015, they’re just a few thousand dollars short of their goal to raise $32,205. And it looks like they’re going to make it!
This project is backed by Sawhorse Revolution which is a non-profit carpentry program for high school students in Seattle. So far they’ve designed a green house, micro home, solar hubs, communal kitchens, composting outhouses, and more for the village (all of which you can see sketches of below). Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.
