community sheds

I read somewhere that the average use of a drill over its lifetime is around 8 minutes. Think of all the drills bought for one little job and then sit in the shed unused for the next ten years. I can also recall the days when the neighbours in the street would borrow my Dad’s lawnmower. Makes sense to have community sheds in neighbourhoods where gardening equipment is available to borrow (would need an honesty and sign out system to keep track of everything). Maybe a mulcher where people can take their garden waste and people can take it for their own gardens. Even community compost? Flow on effects can only be positive: * individuals can save money by not buying a heap of tools they may only use once * lower consumption of ‘stuff’ * foster a gardening community * a sharing economy
