For those who don’t know, our screened-in porch serves as a free store for the community. It’s a great way for us to share food and clothes with people who need them. But it’s more than a charity project, it’s an anti-capitalist model for circulating resources. Anyone can take things from the free store, and anyone can contribute too.
So often, I step out into the porch and I’m surprised to find it filled with cool new stuff. Or I’ll find it cleaned and organized by someone who stopped by to pick up some vegetables.
It’s great to see folks sharing resources this way. Beyond helping people survive day-to-day, participating in the free store reminds us that we can survive without capitalism.
If you want to check out the free store or have anything to contribute, feel free to come by any time – the store is always open!
