Spannocchia is a welcoming community that honors all gender identities and makes it a priority to try to ensure everyone's comfort both when engaged in farming activities and in their housing arrangement. We aim to respect everyone's preferences, while also considering a number of other factors and limited space when making successful roommate pairings. Your response here will not influence your acceptance into the program, but will allow us to assign roommates appropriately. After acceptance into the program, we will contact you if we have any questions or concerns about fulfilling your request.
