Quick questionnaire based on storage for equipment and permaculture

I’m doing my coursework for GCSE graphics and need to do research into my topic. I’m interested in the ideas of permaculture especially the idea of sharing gardening supplies in a community and how nature can be incorporated into design. I would really appreciate if you could spare the time to fill in this questionnaire, thank you so much!


  • Here is the link to the questionnaire, it only takes a minute to complete! Thanks again!!

    There are various 'library of things' around the place, where you can borrow stuff like camping gear and tools. Frome runs one that is very active. They are inspired by places like Vancouver, Toronto and Berlin that run them. Article here.

    Ideas like this, the Community Fridge Network, Olio and Repair Cafes are so important. My neighbourhood does a lot of tool sharing, which works well. We have a very active 'Buy, Sell, Swap' group on Facebook with 16 000 members and a small local email group of neighbours with about 6000 people who share tools and run a community garden. We do plant, seed and cutting swaps too. Slowly, slowly people are beginning to reclaim their front gardens with confidence and even grow veg in them. Though more are being subsumed by driveways.

    Good luck with your project.

    Done!  Good luck with the GCSE. 
    It would be great if you could come back and share your findings, but I guess that might not be allowed since it's for GCSE.

    Done, I assumed however that by "tools" you also meant larger items like rotovators etc etc, sharing a hoe would be impractical for me but less used items sure.
