The Sharehood: Neighborhood Ideas Part I

January 14, 2011

I stumbled on something called The Sharehood today that I wanted to share here.  The vision of the Sharehood is that they would “enable sustainable communities by encouraging you to share resources and get o know people in your local area” (see here).

This may be a bit like the fax machine (i.e. it won’t work until you have a certain critical mass) but they have some great ideas.  Among them are some great ideas for connecting with neighbors including: picnics/barbeques, swaps, movie nights, sports days, super garage sales, progressive dinners, kids parties, Christmas parties and street parties (see here for the original list with explanations)

Check out more ideas for connecting with and caring for your neighborhood (see also Sharehood’s idea of the community library, which I think is awesome!)
