Synopsis: From cars and tools to housing and childcare, many people would like to share resources but don't know how-or where-to start. The Sharing Solution is a timely practical and legal guide that explains how to create and maintain successful sharing arrangements while addressing common concerns about liability, communication, and more.

This book will help anyone share:

  • Meals and food, through bulk buying clubs, meal-sharing arrangements, community gardens, neighborhood fruit harvests, and more
  • Household goods, from tools and toys to appliances and exercise equipment
  • Cars, by sharing a car with a neighbor, starting or joining a car-sharing group, carpooling, or ride-sharing
  • Caregiving, whether for pets, children, older family members, or relatives with disabilities
  • Business resources, such as office supplies, equipment, space, and even employees
  • Housing, whether by sharing a house, retrofitting a home to accommodate two households, or joining a cohousing community

    The Sharing Solution speaks to Americans' growing desire to not only live more sustainably, but also save money and create stronger communities. Sharing is a simple step anyone - young or old, rich or poor - can take, right now, to make a difference.

    Who can benefit from sharing?

  • Busy parents looking for help with meals or pet care
  • Retirees who are looking to share needed services
  • Anyone concerned about the environment and wants to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.
  • Anyone who wishes to purchase property but can't afford a single-family home
  • Professionals who work in community development
  • Low-income families or those who require - or desire - a purchase that they cannot single-handedly afford

    The authors, attorneys Janelle Orsi and Emily Doskow, bring a visionary spirit to developing practical, logistical, and legal frameworks for many types of sharing arrangements.

    In the book, you will find:

  • Sample written agreements for many kinds of sharing arrangements
  • Step by step instructions for creating a sharing plan and sorting out logistics
  • Legal explanations that are clear and accessible
  • Ideas and examples of the creative ways that groups around the country have formed successful sharing arrangements
  • Tips for communicating with your sharing partners and handling disputes
  • Resources to help you find sharing partners, join existing sharing groups, and learn about helpful groups and organizations
  • Useful checklists, charts, tables, and much more

    The ultimate beauty of sharing is that it's a solution we create for ourselves. It's not a government program, nor is it the "latest and greatest" product marketed to us on billboards. It's a solution based on our own needs and lifestyles, in our own communities. It's a way for each of us to shape our own lives in positive ways and simultaneously benefit the world as a whole. In that respect, sharing is more than a simple trend: Some might even say our society is moving toward a sharing revolution. We hope you'll use The Sharing Solution to become part of it.
  • About the Author: Doskow is a practicing attorney and mediator who has worked with families in the Bay Area for more than 15 years. She specializes in family law, including adoption, parentage issues, domestic partnership formation and dissolution, and divorce. She is a graduate of the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley.

    Attorney Janelle Orsi runs a solo law practice specializing in non-profit, small business, and real estate law, focused on helping people to share resources, build community, and live more sustainably.
