Partners in the Community: The Legacy of Windy Pine 1941-2001
Location of Document
Bioregionalism centres itself on the relationships connecting the physical and social community. Unlike exclusive disciplines that explore either relationship between humans or focus solely on the natural environment, the interdisciplinary approach of bioregionalism examines the mutual relationship between humans and natural processes within a region. It is argued that the relationships are in fact diasporic philosophies reaching into the heart of the bioregionalism course divergent from the "experience of place", of one small piece of property (24 acres) on Kushog Lake in the township of Stanhope, Ontario, in the southern end of the Haliburton Highlands bioregion. This property once owned by Dr. Mary Northway and Ms. Flora Morrison, was bequeathed to Trent University in 1982. It is the historic relationship, the legacy of Windy Pine, with the Haliburton community, that is the focus of this paper.
