  I had heard about the Arden Shakespeare Gild and the plays presented every summer in a small ampitheater outdoors next to The Green. When friends invited me to join them to see this outdoor version of "Much Ado About Nothing" it turned out to be a fun evening. It had rained on opening night the day before, so we saw their first performance of the season, and it turned out to be: well cast, well rehearsed, and well-costumed. Beatrice and Benedict were well suited and played as the acid-tongued pair who turn out to be secretly in love with each other. Claudio and Hero are the sweet and loving couple who must endure the (faked) death of Hero and trickery of Don John before they can be joined in marriage by the Friar. This unusual turn of the 20th century community was established as a ge...

This weekend brings an annual event that I look forward to every First Saturday in September, the Arden Fair. Arden was founded early in the 20th century as a free tax community on the principles of Henry George. George was the most influential proponent of the land value tax, also known as the "single tax" on land. He inspired the economic philosophy known as Georgism, whose main tenet is that people should own what they create, but that everything found in nature, most importantly the value of land, belongs equally to all humanity. Accordingly, homes in this community are on leased land, but the land and forests are open to all residents. And although the land leases run for 99 years, I have known people who have divorced, remarried, changed names, and have gotten new 99 year leases e...

   This last Saturday was the 104th Annual Arden Fair in Arden, Delaware, an artists community that was once a summer getaway for Philadelphians who kept cottages there. It was founded on the principles of Henry George as a single tax community. You don't own the land and don't pay County taxes, but pay a flat fee to Arden every year. No matter how large your home, you share common paths and woodlands with your fellow Ardenites. Above you see some of the arts and crafts vendors, and my favorite part, the Flea Market. This year I purchased a pair of etched crystal candlestick holders for $3 (with one defect). And no, I wasn't interested in the Kelly green chairs in the foreground.      Since Arden hosts Shakespearean plays in a glen outside the Gild Hall, it was appropriate for Lady Aime...
