The Share Shed is a Library of Things based in Totnes (Devon, UK), where people can borrow all sorts of useful things, ranging from tools, house appliances, camping and gardening equipment, sewing machines, and much more!

The project enables local people to borrow items at nominal cost so that they don’t have to buy them for themselves. The aim is to build a more resourceful community, allowing people to connect with each other and share things they may need just once in a while, which also reduces our impact on Earth’s precious resources.

You can become further involved by donating items, volunteering your time and skills, and/or helping spread the word.

Check our inventory to see what we have on offer, and feel free to pop by the Share Shed and have a browse around.

Why use the Share Shed?

By collaborating we are stronger.

We have the duty to care for the Earth’s natural resources.

Sharing our ‘stuff’ allows those who can’t afford to buy these things to access them.

Connecting with others improves our wellbeing.

Sharing is fun!

Resourcing Our Community

Sharing items promotes community resilience and empowers people.

Respecting the Earth

By sharing we’re encouraging a much more mindful and respectful use of Earth’s precious natural resources.
