Whether it's a neighborhood garden, a community swap, or a tool lending library, the Center for a New American Dream knows that your block, street, or neighborhood has an exciting project just waiting to come to life.  That's why ioby and the Center for a New American Dream launched the first-ever Get2gether Neighborhood Challenge in 2013.

This year, we're excited to announce that the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre is joining the challenge, allowing us to support awesome neighborhood leaders in Canada!
