CCF Meeting “On the Commons”

June 7, 2011

CCF is meeting “on the commons” in Minneapolis with social investors , folks creating land trusts, cooperatives and other social finance tools to help preserve and expand farmland for food, individuals who are farming, especially folks testing ways of borrowing and using land that isn’t owned personally as well as dealing with questions of succession and community-based revenue. http://onthecommons.org/about-commons-0

Since 2001, On the Commons has sparked collaborations, showcased commons-based solutions at the community and national level, developed approaches of how to share our commons equitably and given inspiration to commons activists to make a difference in their communities— and the world. As a commons movement strategy center, we connect organizations, community leaders and individuals with new ideas, practical solutions and one another to create significant change.

2011 marks our 10th anniversary and a big year for the commons. On the Commons is involved in a remarkable and ever-expanding circle of efforts to reconstitute community, re-localize food, preserve water as a commons, move towards cooperative economics and better harmonize our lives with the health of our planet.
