Shaping our Communities
Sustaining Canada's Future.



This video presentation seeks to examine the connection between horizontal modes of management, when residents provide direct input with their active engagement, in "third places", and social inclusion practices. Considering collective gardens as third places, the research put forward by Sahar Alinezhad explores how such socio-spatial platforms frame neighborhood dynamics. Collective gardens are spaces for food production, sharing of knowledge, and meaningful social encounters. Based on not-for-profit exchanges of tangible and intangible resources, collective gardens favor a wide array of non-hierarchical social interactions leading to engaged communities. Moreover, as low-key venues for social gatherings of individuals at the neighborhood scale, collective gardens constitute prototypical platforms for socially sustainable urban living and could serve as transitional spaces towards social integration contributing to social cohesion of the neighborhood.
