Sharing Revolution Workshop

Blue Building
66th and Phinney Ave, Seattle, WA
For more info contact: cecile@cecileandrews.com

The new “sharing revolution”is involved in sharing cars, houses, and working areas. They’re engaged in co-housing, ‘time banks,’ lending clubs, and local projects that share tools, exchange food produce, and even gardening space. We’re having a workshop to learn how to get involved in this movement in a way that helps reduce stress and saving the planet by increasing social ties and saving money.
Join us on Saturday, June 23 from 10 am to 12:30 pm at the PNA. It’s free, and you can join an ongoing group afterwards.

We’ll be on hand to answer any questions  about starting and running lending libraries, as well as to discuss all the other great opportunities for sharing.  We are looking forward to seeing you there!
