  • Treehouse Village: Nova Scotia’s First Cohousing Community The goals of Treehouse Village, a new housing development in Bridgewater, are threefold: to live lightly on the land, to create a supportive community, and to provide residents with a well-designed and durable place to call home. Learn more about Nova Scotia’s first cohousing community!  



  • Mutual Aid and Community Care, More Important Than Ever - The idea of mutual aid is nothing new. At its core, the concept is simply communities and neighbors taking care of one another and working together. But in the face of rising inequity, an increasingly unstable climate and a lack of adequate institutional support, mutual aid is more important than ever. Read more about the history of the idea, and examples of mutual aid right here at home.  


  • A “Tail” of Resilience: The North Atlantic Right Whale - For centuries, the North Atlantic Right whale has faced threats from human activity, from harvesting for products like oil to collisions with boats and entanglement in fishing gear. Read more about the challenges and hope for recovery for this unique and resilient marine mammal.   



  • The Seasonal Gourmet - With the arrival of spring weather come dreams of garden goods yet to come, which makes this the perfect time to use up the last of the previous year’s harvest. EAC volunteer and sustainable farmer Chiati Seth shares memories of stewed tomatoes and cooking with friends in Kerala, along with a delicious recipe for Kerala egg curry!
