Commonwealth Assets- Blog 3

The community of Silverton is very small and not well know but that does not mean we do not have multiple examples of Commonwealth. Although we are a small town I think we show all of the Commonwealth Assets. The most prominent are Spirituality, Education, and Food shed. Spirituality is one of the biggest examples of Commonwealth. For as long as I can remember, my community’s biggest focus has been on Spirituality. We practice Spirituality not only in a going to Church but in the way we live. Another Commonwealth focus in my community is Education. Education affects every aspect of my community without it we would not have the businesses we have today. Our school has prepared us all for college and the things beyond. Not only is our school a part of our education, all the organizations and programs we have are also a big part. The last of the Commonwealth Assets that is big in my community is Food shed. Silverton is a very Agriculture related community in which we grow multiple crops mainly Cotton and Corn. Although Cotton is not a Food shed Corn is. Not only do the farmers in my community grow Corn we also have a community garden and multiple people grow their own gardens. Food shed is not only important to my community because it is a way of life and a edible crop. It also benefits other communities by providing food. There are multiple Commonwealth Assets in every community not only mine and they affect all aspects of our life and community.
