Samford Commons Entities
There are a number of groups which provide leadership and services to and through Samford Commons. These ‘Samford Commons Entities’ are run as internal businesses or not-for-profit service deliverers by Samford Commons volunteers or employees.
The Samford Commons Community Library aims to inspire interpersonal and inter-organizational communication, creativity, idea sharing and innovation through sharing donated resources throughout the community, providing a comfortable space for individual reflection and small group meetings, and stimulating discussion and debate around local and global issues
School of Sustainability
The School of Sustainability is developing as a network of people, businesses and institutions which will offer education, training, research and other learning services to schools, tertiary institutions, businesses, community groups and the community generally. This will be provided on-site and on-line.
Samford Power exists to coordinate both the development of a community owned energy services enterprise and physical infrastructure to service the Samford Commons site with affordable clean energy. The ultimate aim is to establish a community owned renewable energy company which makes clean energy easy to implement for property owners and easy to invest in for anyone in the greater Samford region.
