179: Fences Down! Fostering Community in an Urban Neighborhood

pm179_150.jpgGardens replace driveways, a chicken coop replaces a garage, and personal relationships are deepening. Meet the residents of three adjoining houses, who removed the fences and talk about shared projects (and their one auto!), meals together, ecological living, and treasured conviviality. This idea could transform urban and suburban neighborhood life anywhere.

Listen to Audio. Read in Janaia’s journal “Fences Down: Creating Community in the City” about taping this conversation. Read a great review on TreeHugger by Sami Grover.

    AND IF YOU SAY - “WOW, I COULDN’T DO THAT WITH MY SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS”, THEN PERHAPS IT IS TIME TO LOOK FOR A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD

    I just love this whole concept and the carrythrough of it.

    I have been asking around for a long time…but no one I know is interested. I know some people are…but how to find them.

    Anyway, bravo to this group of neighbours.

    I love what you are doing. Some of these folks came to our house here in Kauai. Very inspiring and their methods could work well here in our island community. I posted your film on my facebook page. Here is a trailer to our little film. http://vimeo.com/17946839
