Community Land Trusts

 

Community-based groups across the country are working to create sustainable solutions to economic problems such as lack of affordable housing and the loss of local food systems. Within this grassroots movement, people are re-examining their relationships to each other and to their resources and experimenting with new models of development that try to balance the needs of individuals with the needs of the community as a whole.
