Wanted: Members/Participants wanted for forming Rural Intentional Community and Land Back Initiative
Community: Coopérative de Solidarité Biblioterre
Location: Algonquin Traditional Territory/ Outaouais, Quebec (near Wakefield / Ottawa-Gatineau)

Biblioterre is currently seeking new members, and independent, Indigenous project leaders from across the Algonquin Nation

We are a “land-library” cooperative called Biblioterre — a friend-group of Settler-Canadian-identifying environmentalists (farmers, gardeners, arborists, social workers, activists, carpenters, teachers, health practitioners, etc.), residing in unceded Algonquin territory within the Canadian state provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Our intention is to manage an inclusive and accessible landbase for diverse projects, and for people who share in our principles of Equitability, Natural Responsibility, Holistic Health, and Indigenous Allyship.

Coopérative de Solidarité Biblioterre is seeking people who wish to build meaningful connections with land, nature, food, shelter, and each other. Biblioterre is in the process of purchasing a piece of land in the traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg, near the Te-nagàdino-zÌbi a.k.a. the Gatineau River. With 1/2 of the land Biblioterre is planning to build an eco-village/intentional community. In respect of this traditional territory, Biblioterre is planning to make 1/2 of the land available for Algonquin-led (status or non-status) initiatives. 

Biblioterre intends to bridge between Rural and Urban communities, and to involve members and participants who:

  • are passionate about making land accessible for others, or;
  • have few opportunities themselves to connect with nature and land due to systemic, societal barriers.

For membership in Biblioterre, we are seeking people who identify as B.I.P.O.C. We will also be designing and holding space for people with disabilities, as well as folks from the transgendered community. Biblioterre is looking for new members who are inspired by:

  • Farming, Growing, Permaculture
  • Teaching Natural/Outdoor Skills
  • Foraging, Fermenting
  • Affordable Housing
  • Accessible Design
  • Food Security, Food Sovereignty
  • Climate Change Mitigation & Ecosystem Restoration
  • Animal Care & Rescue
  • Health Practices
  • Art, Architecture, Building, Design,
  • Social Work & Community Outreach
  • And More.

For participants in the Algonquin sovereign space / Land Back initiative, we are seeking Algonquin project-leaders who have ideas on how the land can bring benefits to their communities. Biblioterre would love to support, for example:

  • Traditional Teaching Retreats
  • Outdoor/Experiential Learning Youth camps
  • Spaces to host Elders and Knowledge Keepers
  • Anishinaabemowin/Algonquin language house
  • Fasting & Spiritual Cleansing
  • Medicine walks

  • Traditional arts & craftmaking
  • Traditional agriculture and plant propogation
