Our Mission: to help maintain and build self-reliant communities having

  • a healthy respect for and stewardship of the natural resource base;
  • a vibrant economy strong on local products, energy, fuel and food;
  • growth management focused on supporting the historic settlement pattern of villages and downtowns surrounded by rural countryside;
  • social infrastructure and networks to provide equitable support for the less able, solidarity, joy, celebration and rooted connection for all, and
  • active citizen participation in making decisions for the communities’ futures.

Our work focuses on four realms key to community self-reliance:

  • sustainable working lands,
  • community energy,
  • flood hazard mitigation planning, and
  • community development infrastructure.
