Project update - May 11
Thanks everyone for all your fabulous suggestions! We're working through them and will be in touch with successful sites/hosts soon. Happy sharing!
Could your street use a little share spot, or splash of colour? Let us know!
We're looking for places to put street libraries, grow free carts and yarn bombing.
Click through the tabs below to learn more, and choose on each map where you think they should go!
If you'd like to be more involved, let us know at the bottom of the page.
1. Little libraries
Little libraries are small weather-proof cupboards placed on the street, where people can leave books to share with others, or take a book if they like! Learn more here.
Scroll down to suggest little library locations on the map.
We have up to 6 to find homes for. If your spot is chosen, we will work with local makers to build and install the Library, and then it is up to the local community to bring it to life!
2. Grow Free carts
Grow Free carts allow neighbourhoods to share excess produce, seedlings, jars and other homemade wares.
The tag-line is "take what you need, give what you can". Learn more here.

We have up to 6 to find homes for. We are looking for people to submit locations where they can be custodians of the cart - to take care of it and bring it in at night if needed. If your spot is chosen, we will work with local makers to build the cart, bring it to you.. and then it's up to you to bring it to life!
We note that some areas of our community are currently in a fruit fly outbreak. Any carts in these areas will have to adhere to local restrictions.
3. Yarn bombing
Yarn bombing is using knitted or crocheted wool to bring colour to an area.
Yarn bombing can be done on trees, posts, benches, you name it!
Learn more here.
Scroll down to suggest yarn bombing locations on the map.
We will work with local yarn bombing specialists, knitters, crocheters and other community crafters to yarn bomb popular areas (subject to approval).
