Disseminating information about public space

For our current set of publishing activities, see

CELOS Publishing is at an early stage. Among the current methods for dissemination of information are newsletters, websites, and publications.

Friends of Dufferin Grove Park began a monthly newsletter in September 2000, which has been published by CELOS since 2003. CELOS also distributes a weekly web newsletter about the Dufferin Park Farmers' market, and an occasional e-newsletter about Toronto city rinks.

Websites directly operated by CELOS include dufferinpark.ca, cityrinks.ca, and CELOS.ca. These collectively already have thousands of visitors per month. In addition CELOS has a free webhosting service (parkcommons.ca) as an "incubator" to help qualified community groups get started with a platform to further disseminate information about what they do in public space. These include the Toronto Community Garden Network website (tcgn.ca), kidsgrowing.ca, and more than a dozen others.

Publishing include booklets on the pleasures and safety considerations of outdoor cooking fires, and the use, management, and enjoyment of outdoor city rinks.
