Neighbourhood Sharing Sheds: A community capital project


Everyone has so much stuff that they rarely use.  Wouldn’t it be great if neighbours got together and built a sharing shed that could be used to share stuff with each other.  Items that could be stocked in the sharing shed could include lawn mowers, bicycles, pressure washers, ladders, wheelbarrows, tools, and so on.   Ideally, the shed would be staffed by one person in the community and a small fee could be charged to use the items to cover the costs of the share shed staff person. This idea would work equally well using existing facilities such as the someone’s unused garage or a storage room in an apartment building. It is not just the money that people will save, it is the community capital they will build!
