Resilience, bioregional self-reliance, common integrity

A community is a group of living things with shared features, attributes or interests, such as place, norms, religion, values, customs, or identity. The English-language word "community" derives from the Latin communitas: public spirit, common.

"A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves." ~Wendell Berry, The Long-Legged House

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” ~ Jane Howard
