For Places

In rural areas, there aren’t as many homeless people as there are peopleless lands.  So, ACW has gotten involved with land trusts and other community projects looking for like-minded humans to LOVE, inhabit, care-take, sustainably live upon (alone or with others), environmentally protect, and/or purchase or rent various beautifully wild and wonderful pieces of land in our region.
