Creative cooperation

Creative cooperation | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

A very unique and stylish re-creation. 

 

"In these challenging economic times, communities and people everywhere are being encouraged to share, to offer up their own particular resources and strengths, to sacrifice an old way of being or seeing to meet a more current need. And I'm betting the more successful communities work that way because they have a unique quality, a sort of shared quirkiness -- and an acceptance of that -- a sense of pride in who they are and what they have accomplished together, and a willingness to approach their challenges creatively, and together." -Diane Walker
