Do Things Together
Community gardens are organised by keen gardeners who either don't have their own space to garden, or who like to garden socially. A typical garden is productive, with a variety of foods being grown, though non-edible plants may also be part of a garden. Different gardens have different norms and expectations, such as how space, costs and what is grown is shared. Community gardens contribute to food security in cities and towns by producing food locally.

Men's Sheds are open access sheds whose primary purpose is to provide a safe and friendly environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace in their own time in the company of other men. A major objective is to advance the well-being and health of their members.

Shared work spaces (other terms include fabrication laboratories, makerspaces) are open access workshops where almost anything can be made by anyone. These offer shared access to a combination of high end machines, tools and software (including but not limited to digital fabrication) as well as diverse networks of people with skills to help develop and refine ideas and prototypes.
