Woodland Community Land Trust

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Woodland Community Land Trust is to acquire a land base that will allow for diversified housing options, sustainable income production opportunities, social and educational services, and for a cohesive community development effort.

Description

Local residents came together to create The Woodland Community Land Trust in 1977 to acquire a land base sufficient for citizens to build a sustainable community. Trust lands create the place for residents to exercise their rights and responsibilities over the land, to their neighbors, and to the larger world of which they are a part. Residents of Woodland Community Land Trust support the effort to obtain decent and affodable housing, economic sustainability, and social, educational and cultural enrichment.

In March 2012 The Clearfork Community Institute performed their first participatory digital storytelling project. The collaborative process included three of the Institute’s Volunteers In Partnership and five young people on the Woodland Community Land Trust, and three Notre Dame students (as noted in the credits). They told a story of their ridge on the Land Trust. Check out a YouTube Video of Woodland Community Land Trust by clicking here…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbHWgw0UEk4
