    Umatilla Hill neighbors share a tool shed, where they store supplies for the community's communal garden. Residents aren't required to participate, but to reap the benefits, they must play an active role. Umatilla Hill also offers additional opportunities for social interaction, including potlucks, an emergency preparedness group (they're on an earthquake fault line) and an environmental course many neighbors are taking together. — Photo by Misha Gravenor
