Urban “honesty box”

I know it’s just a shameless marketing campaign,  but I don’t mind this stuff when it also drives some interesting public space activation.   Today a range of markets, laneways (and hay bails!) were at James St as part of Southern Queensland Tourism’s “Autumn on James”

It included a “honesty box” system of produce in some nooks.   In theory this can (and probably already does) happens in everyday urban community gardens, workplaces, and streets.  I’ve seen many ideas of retrofitting suburbs, including my 2008 work at IwB, which encourages these principles in more public and overt neighbourhood/street  “trade” and sharing systems.
