http://frontporchforum.com/ Read about a very cool, humbling and heart warming way of being neighbors. I hope this idea can spread to many other "hoods" in the world.
The founders of FPF just needed to communicate more with their new neighbors after moving to a new address: and created this whole wonderful community creating and embracing system of sharing local information- about local and international matters and issues!
Lucky are all of us who have this foundation to build our neighbor relationships on. Thank you Front Porch Forum Burlington!
