We had a good crowd at our inaugural meeting of Silver Spring Shares, following up from the May 10 ShareFest. We continue to draw new people to the group which is exciting. Doug Duncan and his son John also joined us last night to learn more about the sharing movement in Silver Spring.
We decided we’d like to learn more about different sharing ventures that might be possible for Silver Spring and we settled on time-banking which draws individuals together as a community to share their time, skills and resources. Our goal is to invite some local experts from the Greenbelt Timebank, the Columbia Community Exchange and the DC Timebank to our next meeting.
