Update: Originally planning on comm surveys driving solution investigation - Finding that I need more time to get that data than I have- So, modding the project - if ne1 has any great, quick ways to get survey traction on social platforms,I'd love to read 'em. :-)
I would like to explore creating a local distribution network:
- connect service and goods havers(sell, gift, trade - homemade, used or otherwise) with service and goods wanters
- connect sets of these with transport/storage helper resources around the community
I live in an area with a ton of do-it-yourselfers,crafters,small farmers,etc. & ppl with things for others to re-use.
Big impediments are distribution & communication. I’d like to explore options for community sourcing everything from small > large transportation to warehousing,etc.
I envision people selling things, but also bartering by direct barter or providing varied support services/spaces/tools, etc. for this network or other community efforts.
