Wendell Berry inspires community mapping

As part of a Community Mapping Project, residents ages 5 to 75 have been making maps of meaningful places within their community for almost a year. They've charted everything, including the scary spider that lives in a woodshed, the old town water pump at the far end of a front lawn, the best place to consume Starbusts purchased from the Cabot General Store.

Wendell Berry, a farmer, writer and philosopher, put it succinctly when he said, "If you don't know where you are, then you don't know who you are."
