This film is the third of 5 films about community building. This looks at labels, gifts and more ‘lessons’ as to how we can engage with communities. It includes the story of the Stone Soup, how a group of homeless men started cooking in the soup kitchen and a volunteer who helped improve a creek for salmon.

Jim Diers has kindly given permission to publish parts of his talk – the discussion and more is not part of this film but I hope it still gives a good flavour of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) and a great reminder to those of us fortunate enough to be on the course.
