Janice and I went to the Craigslist Foundation bootcamp at UC Berkeley this past weekend where the theme was “empowering communities”. There were so many interesting and inspirational speakers talking about how to build or strengthen communities. When we started Alameda Backyard Growers, earlier this year, the idea was to build community, one veggie at a time. It’s been great to see how we are laying the foundations for a stronger community with your help because we are all in this together.
All this talk of community makes me curious about our community so I’d like to pose the following questions to you to start you thinking.
What is the one thing you could do this week to further strengthen community in your street?
Is there someone you have been meaning to contact or to go and see in the community?
Tell us about your good deeds so that the rest of the community sees and gets ideas from that.
