The Buy Nothing Project Davis (East) and (West) groups


Did you know we have two Facebook groups of the international Buy Nothing Project right here in Davis? One covering 95616 (West) and one for 95618 (East).

We offer members a way to give and receive, share, lend, and express gratitude through a worldwide network of hyper-local gift economies in which the true wealth is the web of connections formed between people who are real-life neighbors. You can post anything you'd like to give away, lend, or share in our Buy Nothing community groups. You can ask for anything you'd like to receive for free or borrow. Keep it legal. Keep it civil.

If you live in Davis, we'd love to have you join us! You can join one group only, the group where you live so you can literally "give where you live." This is what builds community.

In this group there is no buying or selling, no trades or bartering, no soliciting for cash. We're an adult-only, hyper-local gift economy. We are not a charity or community bulletin board.

Both Davis groups are administered by teams of Davis residents but are part of the global Buy Nothing Project which has over a half million members worldwide. Currently there are over 1,000 members in the combined Davis groups and we continue to grow. 

We are all about:

  • Offers of any goods or services you'd like to share, loan, or give away.
  • Requests for any goods or services you'd like to borrow, or keep.
  • Gratitude posts ! Gratitude is key; it's what fuels the magic.

Our local links to join: 

Davis (East) 95618

Davis (West) 95616

Is this group still operating? I asked because last post I see (by "Davisite2") is nearly 2 years old: May 19, 2018 --- we just moved here from Berkeley area. The Buy Nothing group there & all around was very active.
