I’m real jazzed up about a recent FPF interaction I had and I would like to share it with my lovely neighbors. I was recently in need of a bike trailer, so I posted the request to FPF, and got a number of solid replies. (Thanks to all for that!) One woman, Julie, replied that she had an old bike trailer I could have. Have! When I came to get it she told me that she had had it sitting in her garage for a long time, unsure of what to do with it. Enter FPF. Now she has more garage space, I’ve got a bike trailer, and yesterday I took my compost down to the Intervale and did three loads of laundry SANS CAR!! Thanks to Julie, FPF, and all you grand neighbors.
Other benefits… now Katie has met several more of her nearby neighbors, which helps to weave the fabric of community. Along the same lines, all of her neighbors who read FPF got to share in this exchange… a lovely shot in the arm.
