LoreGuide is a tool for generating community connections; it weaves together local stories and resources to illustrate the ideas we hold in common. 

The overarching goal is to strengthen community resilience by raising awareness of the rich web of relationships that make up our community: the existing relationships that make up our community lore; and new relationships with the potential to transform local needs and resources into local opportunities.



"A community, too, must collect leaves and stories, and turn them to account.  It must build soil, and build that memory of itself - in lore, and story, and song - that will be its culture."  

- Wendell Berry, from "The Work of Local Culture"
