Fences Down! Fostering Community in an Urban Neighborhood (179)

pm179_640Gardens 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. Episode 179.

  1. 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

    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.
