Biblioterre

Near Wakefield, QC

We are a land-based cooperative aspiring to demonstrate an ecologically sustainable and equitable ways of living; with respect for inherent Indigenous sovereignty and cultural revitalization, and with responsibility as humans towards all life on earth.

Our 4 Pillars:

Natural Responsibility:

As caretakers of the Earth and all living beings affected by human behaviour, we intend to prioritize the needs of the land by engaging in ecosystem restoration, biodiversity protection and regenerative food production, while providing a venue for people to deepen their relationship with nature.

Equitability:

Through sociocracy, we intend to use non-violent communication while working collaboratively to practice non-hierarchical and consent-based decision-making. We aim to become aware of our individual privileges and biases, and work towards a social model that considers the nuances of each individual’s identities. We also aim to approach projects and activities through an intersectional lens with the intention of being inclusive and accessible to outside communities. This includes creating a safe space for all animals and humans, regardless of race, gender, ability, sexuality, ethnicity, class, and age.

Algonquin Allyship:

In acknowledgement of unceded Algonquin traditional territory, and in gratitude for the Land on which Biblioterre resides, we seek advisors from the local Algonquin community to guide initiatives by and for Algonquin people and to lead projects and ceremonies on the Land.

Holistic Health: 

We would like to recognize and prioritize the interrelationships between a healthy planet, healthy relationships, a healthy mind, and a healthy body. We seek projects and collaborations that promote holistic health and social justice and address how generations of trauma and systemic violence and oppression impact individual and community health.

We gratefully accept donations

Thank you for supporting the Biblioterre community vision.
