You need a tool for a construction project but you know that you’ll never use it again after the project is finished. You’d like to do something with the apples from your apple tree but you don’t own an apple corer or have the space to store one anyhow. Your child is ready for a bike, but you know that she will outgrow it in a year.
Almost every day we face decisions about what to buy and how to use what we own. An increasing number of people in our community are turning to resource sharing as a way to complete a construction project, cook a meal, and bring joy to a child without having to spend money on a new thing that will just end up collecting dust in the closet.
Southeast Uplift (3534 SE Main St.) is hosting a free workshop on resource sharing on Saturday, October 20th, 10am-Noon. With project presentations, networking opportunities, and useful resources, this workshop will provide participants with the inspiration and practical tools they need to start and grow resource sharing in their own neighborhoods!
If you are at all interested in sharing tools, household items, workspace, cars, bikes, clothing, skills, land for gardening, or even chickens – this workshop is the place to get started!
