We’re all in this together!

We’re all in this together!

The climate emergency has begun and by all accounts things are going to get bumpy. Now more than ever, it’s important to remember that we’re all in this together. Cooperation is humanity’s greatest strength and asset. It’s time to come together and work together.

You may be wondering about the “and Commons” bit in our name. We believe that reclaiming the commons is the most important thing we can do currently to address the combined global threats we face today. Most people today aren’t familiar with the language of “the Commons” or “commoning”, but it describes a way of working together that is as old as humanity and that we’ve all experienced in our lives. We’ve just lost a way of talking about it.

At Highgrove Farm and Commons, we are as focused on rebuilding and reclaiming the language and habits of the commons as we are on growing healthy food and healing the environment at the same time. We’ll be posting updates on our projects and progress here as well as on Twitter, Instagram and our Facebook page. Follow along if any of those are part of your social media diet. You can also listen in on our Slack Channel for real time action on the farm.
