The Importance of Communities for our Wellbeing

Some clients express frustration when looking for a home due to a dying sense of community in neighbourhoods. It is often something they can not define when I ask them what they are looking for; but something they definitely feel when it is absent.  What does community mean to you?  Recently, a friend sent me a link to a TedTalk by Charles Montgomery which presents solid evidence for the importance of communities and social systems for our well being as humans.  I found it very interesting and would like to share it with you in this edition of Corner Lot.
