In the August issue of Cooperative Living, we feature the community of Scottsville in our Crossroads section. We highlight Baines Books & Coffee, a place the Scottsville community comes to not only read books and drink coffee but where groups come to meet and talk and hang out or bring their laptop to work.

There are places like Baines Books & Coffee in a lot of our communities across Virginia. Let us know if you have a spot like this that you like to go in the comments below.

The football season is ramping back up with preseason games already going on. We thought it would be the perfect time to revisit the Commonwealth Kitchen and showcase our tailgating treats column from October 2018.

Our Cooperative Living chef Kara created this video to show us how to make Baked Potato Salad.
