Today, host Richard Mabion will speak on neighborhood groups with Emily Miller of MARC, Rich Gutowski and others.

Mr. Rogers said, “All we’re ever asked to do in this life is to treat our neighbor—especially our neighbor who is in need—exactly as we would hope to be treated ourselves. That’s our ultimate responsibility.”

Community empowers people to be active citizens and to generate ideas at a grassroots level. This is about thinking together in a non-confrontational and truly democratic way. Concepts are questioned. Power shifts, minds change and preconceptions are discarded.  Ethics are a moral sense of right and wrong demonstrated through one’s actions in everyday life; when a person cares about someone or something, their conduct conveys that care and respect, inviting the same in return. Ethics direct all members of a community to treat one another with respect for the common good.


A land ethic expands the definition of “community” to include not only humans, but all of the other parts of the Earth as well: soils, waters, plants, and animals – “the land”. In a land ethic, the relationships between people and land are intertwined; care for people cannot be separated from care for the land. Thus, a land ethic is a moral code of conduct that stems from these interconnected caring relationships.

Aldo Leopold said, “When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
