We are a barter network for the creative community. Our members trade skills, spaces and objects to get their work done without money.
Milkwood is a crew of doers and makers, dedicated to skills for smart, simple, regenerative living.
We’re a social enterprise based south of Sydney, Australia.
We thrive on sharing practical skills and knowledge that can help individuals and communities move towards a mode of living that’s ethical, abundant, and deeply hands-on.
At the moment we do this in two ways: with short courses held in both in Sydney and nearby farms, and with free online how-tos and resources.
We work with the best teachers we can find. People who are not only walking the talk, but are also skilled, humble and awesome communicators, who can empower folks to make the most of their new knowledge.
Ever heard of an in-residence program where you actually get to keep the residence??! That would be the case in this innovative new model coming out of Detroit.
Write A House accepted applications from working, “low-income” writers earlier this spring, which included writing samples and a letter of intent. Whoever wins (to be announced this month) will call Detroit home for at least the next two years. Writers will lease the homes from the nonprofit, a small amount to cover taxes and insurance. If they stay for 24 months, they’ll be awarded the deed — and Detroit will count another resident to its comeback. To read more about this awesome endeavor, CLICK HERE—>
