Abundant Community Windsor Park

A grassroots initiative fostering neighbour-to-neighbour relationships

ACE 

The goal – to cultivate a culture of care and connection, increased sense of belonging and inclusion, and ultimately create a more healthy and livable neighbourhood – one block at a time.

What is Abundant Community?

“Abundant Community is based on the belief that every individual in a neighbourhood has a contribution

to make, and uncovering, sharing and the harnessing those contributions creates neighbourliness, and

also addresses issues as diverse as social isolation, crime, and physical and mental health…” ~Mary Sturgeon, Make Something Edmonton

At the heart of the Initiative… is a neighbour or two on each block, a Block Connector who creates a connection and casual conversations with each household about:

 

  • Life on the block and in the neighbourhood.
  • Having a block social periodically.
  • Creating a confidential contact list for the block.

 

Meet some of our Block Connectors:

Our process …

 

  • Neighbourhood Connector Penny Tucker:
    • Finds and supports Block Connectors.
    • Facilitates and encourages the block connecting conversations
    • Feeds back to the neighbourhood what we hear from our blocks
