The Downtown De-Fence Project

The Downtown De-Fence Project is a non-profit service that offers free fence removal to any willing home owner.

DDP works to remove fences from Toronto properties because:
* fenced properties look more like jailyards than homes
* fences are a self-imposed rusty barrier between neighbours
* fences create feelings of isolation and detachment

The whole idea is to encourage community building and I think that's a great idea.

Visit The Downtown De-Fence Project online for before/after shots of work they've done lately or for info on how you can volunteer - next day of de-fencing is August 6th.
