The Together Gardening Initiative is an initiative where gardening tools and machines are bought and stored central so everyone can start gardening without owning the tools needed. Everyone who’s a member of the TGI initiative can rent out these tools for the time they need. Via the convenient app and website, you can check whether the tooling you need is available. That is done with sensors on each tooling. The price for renting out tooling and machines is simple; When it leaves the storage space area, the time starts. When you return the tooling to the storage space, your time stops and gets translated in a digital invoice. By offering the winnings of your gardening efforts to other TGI members, you receive discounts up to the point where you can use the tools and machines for free. This idea is especially thought of in the light of city gardens or social gardening areas but can also be used by people in rural areas who just don’t want to buy stuff that they only use once per year.
A relationship with books as a starting point for relationships with real people. The bookswap.com service enables people to keep track of their personal library, say what books are available for swapping and keep track of the ones that got passed on/through. By discovering books you love (to read), meet people with mutual interests, start discussing them books and other stuff that matters to you. Enjoy the track and trace of your (favourite) books that passed through real people’s hands.
The book swap service works with a book valuation system and guestbook review system per book aims to become the largest reading initiative in the world.
The guestbook review system can be compared with the guestbook at the end of a exhibition or hotel visit. Every member of the bookswap service gains points which can be exchanged to get priority listing on rare books.
