Re-Becoming Villagers Wherever We Live



Whether city folk or country folk, North Americans don’t tend to know our neighbors, much less do things together. Mark Lakeman (Portland) and Brandy Gallagher (rural Vancouver Island) talk about “repairing” our isolation. How can we we reclaim our village roots−living, working and playing in the same neighborhood? Mark, founder of City Repair, helps create gathering places with projects like the famous painted street intersections. Brandy, founder of O.U.R. Ecovillage, discusses overcoming regulatory hurdles like narrow zoning laws by working with agencies to find innovative solutions. Episode 268.
