Bad fences make bad neighbours

Toronto Public Space Committee
Organizing Meeting for De-fencing project
Tonight, Aug. 4 @ Trinity Bellwoods Park
7 pm (at the painted dog)

chain link fence.

a self-imposed rusty barrier between neighbours.

properties surrounded by chain link look more like jailyards than homes.

fences create feelings of isolation and detachment.

by taking them down, we encourage a process of community building.


De-Fencing is good exercise, lots of fun and opens up our neighbourhoods! Join us for our first Volunteer Meeting of the year! We need help to get this project off the ground in '09.


Other good things happening in the park on the same day:

BEFORE: 3pm to 7pm - Trinity Bellwoods Farmers' Market at Crawford & Dundas.

AFTER: Weekly Drum Circle in the pit.
