Community Building Tip: Tool Sharing

In today's fragmented world, people can improve it by reaching out to each other. Here are some ideas for building community in your neighborhood.

Create a formalized tool-sharing program. Sure, you can just ask Joe next door if you can borrow his drill, but consider establishing a more formal tool-sharing program to get everyone involved. I love this idea because tools are one of those things that you generally only use once in a while, so why not share them when they’re not in use? Local Tools is an online lending library management system that can get you started. Or check out Peerby or Streetbank to see if your neighbors are already participating.
