I am back from a holiday in Canada (Toronto) and Maine, U.S.A. Lucky me!
It was not all dozy sight seeing and I saw a number of local projects and initiatives which had me thinking about the little patch I call Battlefield, but is more widely know as the City Stadium, together with the Lower Ouseburn Valley. Lessons in, and confirmation of, my central belief in urban open space and local community action.
The Saturday farmers market at Don Valley, Toronto.
Don Valley, Toronto, once a site of a vast brick works, now community wildlife and local projects park.
