Becoming a Self Sustaining Neighborhood

March 9, 2011

Don’t expect to have total involvement from all the folks in your neighborhood, but as time passes, and things tighten up more and more people will come into the neighborhood group.  More people mean more diverse talents, and a larger pool of neighborhood equipment.  You will have more equipment and talent at the disposal to the community.

Organize monthly trade days and advertise to the rest of the city or town.  Bake sales, yard sales or any other event you can think of and enjoy doing, are other events to utilize and advertise. 

Use the money your neighborhood has raised or a portion of those funds as a community fund to purchase equipment or for repairs to equipment you already have. Other items to consider adding to  your neighborhood center is emergency gear and water filters.  Are you supplied with city water?

If so consider a community well.  It would be a good idea to include the style  of water pump that includes the hand pump handle to go with it.

Hoping and praying for the best is a great attitude to have but, only the Creator knows what tomorrow will bring.  Prepare for the worst and pray for the best.
