Centre for Independent Living in Toronto  
http://www.cilt.ca/default.aspx

CILT is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities to learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community. (Please note: CILT is a resource agency and does not do any political, systemic or group advocacy!)


 
CILT operates on the philosophy of the Independent Living movement which was developed in response to traditional rehabilitation services models. CILT's aim is to develop and implement dignified social services that empower individuals rather than create dependencies. We encourage people with disabilities to take control of their own lives by exercising their right to examine options, make choices, take risks and even make mistakes.

Harvest Collective  
http://harvestcollective.wordpress.com/

Harvest Collective broke ground in the Spring of 2009 and spent the season growing food together and developing backyards into farms around the Seattle area.   We are organized as a cooperative that is owned and operated by its producers.  The producers are primarily Seattle’s urban farmers.

 
By exchanging directly from one neighbor to the other, it keeps food fresh, dollars within our own neighborhoods, and brings food directly from urban farms to kitchens, only miles from where it was produced.
