Roots of the CLT Movement

Roots and Branches

Roots & Branches:  A Gardener's Guide to the Origins and Evolution of the Community Land Trust  is a digital archive of historical materials tracing the origins and evolution of the community land trust. Roots & Branches was developed by John Emmeus Davis, Greg Rosenberg, and artist Bonnie Acker to preserve essential pieces of the CLT movement’s history.  Though it has now entered archival status as a project, it remains the most complete history of the beginnings of the CLT movement.  We've included links to key sections of below to make it easy to access the website.  As a companion to this website, John has written Origins and Evolution of the Community Land Trust in the U.S. (download PDF).
