Neighbor Mutual Aid Society

Posted on Wednesday, November 21, 2007 by No comments yet

Michele and Tom posted the following note on their FPF neighborhood forum in Essex yesterday…

I would love to see the Forum used for sharing ideas and helping each other out with yardwork, household jobs that need an extra hand, and possibly even lending tools or coming with your tools to help a neighbor. Is anyone interested in an informal group like this? It would be a sort of mutual aid society to help people who may not know how to do certain tasks, just need some advice, or to work together to know each other and get a job done more quickly and done right!!

Great idea!  And one that we’ve seen take hold in several parts of our pilot region where Front Porch Forum is flourishing.
