A Sharing Engine for Building Community

What’s Cookin’ cooperation platform allows you to offer anything you want to share in your community, and to make wishes so others know what would be welcome.  Neighbors have shared meals, activities, art, gardening, music and more.  Share freely or sell, it is up to you. 

What would you share?           What would you wish for?
