About Us

Our Community Green is based on the concept of historic Town Commons – the greenspace, park, or town square that was often at the center of many towns. This space serves as a gathering place for town folk to meet, share information, hold forums, celebrations and sometimes trade goods.

Our Community Green is a virtual online version of that – a place to learn about what is happening in our community, to share information, to find interesting people to connect to and projects to engage in. However, we don’t want you to spend all your time indoors on a computer reading about what’s going on in your community. We hope you will be inspired by what you see here to seek out some of the people, businesses and organizations you are drawn to, join in projects already happening or start some of your own. And then tell us your stories!

Our logo – Communitree - represents the fact that humans are an interdependent, interconnected part of nature, that we cannot separate ourselves from it. It also symbolizes the strength that comes from community – the more people engaged the stronger the trunk, and the more leaves –options – the healthier the tree/ community.

Nature includes us…
We are in it and are a part of it…
if it does not thrive, we cannot thrive.
- Wendell Berry
