It’s never been easier to connect with neighbors around the world! From Krrb to AirBnB and Lyft, peer to peer communities are popping up everywhere. Here are a few new ones that have us getting online to get offline.

For Collaborating

If you’re an independent freelancer, it can be a lonely work life. SpareChair is a way to share workspace whether it’s in a studio or at your breakfast table. Rent a “spare chair” and connect with fellow creatives. Anyone can host or grab a guest spot in someone else’s working space.

Why We Like It: Unlike other coworking spaces, SpareChair is a low commitment. You can set up shop for as low as $5 and then switch to a new location when you feel like a change.

For Traveling

Think of Tripda as modern day hitchhiking. This ride-sharing community makes long-distance travel easy and safe. You sign up with Facebook and get to know nearby travelers before picking a ride and route. Any transactions occur through the app, eliminating those awkward splitting gas conversations.

Why We Like It: Aside from making road trips an eco-friendly option, we like how this app offers a ladies only option. Drivers and passengers alike can opt for added comfortability by only accepting other women as travel partners.

How to Get Connected: iPhone, Android

For Grocery Shopping

Cut out the middle man with Farmigo. This site connects neighborhoods with farms, making it easier than ever to get local produce straight from the source. Famrmigo has presence in New York City and San Francisco and plans to branch into other cities soon.

Why We Like It: You’re not just getting beets and apples. Order fresh bread and dairy products straight from small-batch food purveyors. We like how we can skip the lines at the grocery store all together.
