Why Linden + Oak signed up!
When we were approached with the opportunity to become a Vendor for the community CoWork Pilot TakeOver Week, we were ALL in, because our vision and concept for Linden and Oak was to always be a co-working space, as we are located in the Charles Clark Medical Centre, and local to so many free-lancers and local entrepreneurs in the surrounding area, so it only made sense to optimize the micro-space we occupy for those individuals needing a positive space to connect with others.
And then we continued learning all about Rural On Purpose, and it was just something my husband, Matt and I identified with immediately, because we actually do live Rural On Purpose. We prefer small towns and connection with the community and this is something we have always wanted to see in High River! We love the feeling of community and we see everyday how hard working High River really is, so we have always needed spaces to work together to throw ideas out, collaborate, or simply just learning from one another and what is working for our community in High River.
This is going to be epic for the town, as High River is an up and coming small town outside of the city and this is going to open so many doors for all of our business owners in the community, from Ashley herself at Freshly Pressed to even how we implement use of our space at Linden and Oak, and any free-lancers and bloggers out there like A Lush Life or even new businesses like White Bull and Doug Mitchell Photography that are just a year old! It builds support systems that we haven’t experienced yet in High River and will just show how much strength there is in living Rural on Purpose.
