Help create Moonee Valley's first Sharing Shed

Monday, 05 August In

Do you want try out new kitchen appliances, sports equipment and musical items but don't want to fork out the cash for them? Are you tired of buying expensive products to use once? Is your shed full of stuff you don't need?

A Sharing Shed is the answer!

Sharing Sheds are set up so you can make the most of those items that only come in handy every once in a while, without having to buy them yourself!

This is stuff like lawn mowers, gardening and other tools, musical instruments, board games, kitchen appliances, sewing machines, cargo bikes and sporting equipment, tents and camping gear.

It's the perfect solution for those with limited storage space at home, renting, those wanting to be more sustainable with their purchases, or even those who just want to try something new out!

At the Sharing Shed, you can also learn how to use the equipment! For example, before you borrow a tent, a team of "Everyday Experts" can show you how to set up a great campsite, or you can get a tutorial on how to use a pasta machine before you take it home. Mamma mia!  

Sound pretty good? Well, a group of community sustainability champions are starting up a sharing shed right here in Moonee Valley. But to do this, they need your ideas!

What would you like to see in a shed? Where could it be located? What tools or skills could you share?

Tell us all this and more when you take our survey and help make the shed the best it can be. You'll then go in the draw to win a copy of Erin Rhoads book, Waste Not.
