You and everyone else in the community are potential community assets. Everyone has some skills or talents, and everyone can provide knowledge about the community, connections to the people they know, and the kind of support that every effort needs – making phone calls, looking after animals, giving people information, moving equipment or supplies – whatever needs doing.
Blissberry Farm believes this suggests that everyone in the community can be a force for community improvement if only we knew what their assets were, and could put them to use.
One of our members form the Healthy Garden noted: “Every single person has capacities, abilities and gifts. Living a good life depends on whether those capacities can be used, abilities expressed and gifts given.”
