By their own hands : 200 years of building community in St. Andrews, Nova Scotia
Cunningham, Gord; Fiander, Kate
This case study explores the conditions that have fostered a high degree of volunteer-led community development activities in the village of St. Andrews, Antigonish County. The authors, analysing the community using an asset-based community development (ABCD) approach, identify a set of values that puts a premium on self sufficiency, community spirit and care for others.
