The Wellspring Commons Stewards, Inc.

Cherry Liley co-founded the Wellspring Commons Stewards as a creative forum to weave together multidisciplinary collaborations for place-based sustainability solutions. Liley is committed to exploring how narrative change can bring about a greater sense of relatedness between people and nature in the dominant culture. The Rights of Nature movement provides an example of an empowering narrative that values the inherent right of all life to thrive. It also provides important tools and strategies for effectively conserving land and supporting healthy human communities.
