New Columbia Commons is an online community forum providing fellowship around ideas and resources to promote human flourishing at local and regional levels and beyond.  The Commons offers consideration of sustainable life ways, faith traditions, and technologies of indigenous peoples and immigrant groups who have lived from the Rockies to Puget Sound.  Palouse Colony Farmi is a real place located in the heart of the Inland’s Pacific Northwest, a region of fabled fertility and beauty where the historic colony also serves as a metaphor for the wider exploration of Commons ideas and global destinations.
