Community Building

Fairhaven programming builds community around the diverse interests and skills of those who seek an alternative to the consumption-heavy lifestyle of our industrialized society.  Fairhaven’s Regrow Rural America Homestead Project focuses on restoring rural neighborhoods to economic health.  Family-centered community building begins by creating safe and supportive learning environments for all ages.  

The goal is to strengthen communities and personal and family relationships to build a network of organically sustainable neighborhoods that make effective use of local knowledge, growing self-sufficient communities by showing others how to do the same.
