Society too often pushes us to covet ownership of things, even when they would seldom be used.  In many cases, access to these things would fulfill most of our desires. When we prioritize access over ownership, a model for resource sharing emerges.  This model applies not only to physical possessions but to the gifts and talents of community residents as well. Sharing physical resources reduces our impact on the environment while sharing our individual expertise catalyzes the growth of our neighbors and by extension the fabric and well-being of our community.
