AOL is showing an AP story today, Alaska Town is Giving Away Free Land.
Here’s the interesting twist: the program was developed by the local high school students. They convinced the city council to go along with it.
Other free land programs exist. I’m familiar with Kansas Free Land, an impressive regional effort.
- Ask your local students to get involved in your community efforts in a meaningful way. Ask them to brainstorm!
- Consider banding together with other communities in your region for a similar land giveaway program.
