Karen Taylor is
taking a leave of absence from Arcosanti after many years of dedicated
service since 1991. She was part of the original effort to establish a
Council in 1992 and has been active on and off on the Council since
then. She is also one of the original members of ALT [the Arcosanti
Leadership Team] and has in all her time here set a consistent example
of community minded conscientiousness. Over the past 11 years she has
initiated and hosted a lot of special workshops, for instance in
Wood-working, Photography and Permaculture. She has also hosted an
Arcosanti information booth at the ‘Hopes Conference’ in Eugene, OR for
many years. Karen with crew Mark Whigham, Liz Shiffler and Gregor
