Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good: An Evening with Author Heather Menzies

  • Mahone Bay Centre 45 School Street, Mahone Bay
Beginning with an intimate account of unearthing the heritage of the commons and the real tragedy of its loss, Menzies offers a detailed description of the self-organizing, self-governing and self-informing principles of this nearly forgotten way of life, including its spiritual practices and traditions. She then identifies pivotal commons practices that could be usefully revived today. A final 'manifesto' section pulls these facets together into a unified vision for reclaiming the commons, drawing a number of current popular initiatives into the commons and commoning frame - such as local food security, permaculture and the Occupy Movement.
