Zhuji, a city in Zhejiang Province, is paving the way for a unique concept of a "shared community" that is gaining momentum across the country. Residents of the community Dingyuan can now enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables that are preserved in storage sites, thanks to the program of "exchange basket" - a first of its kind in the province. As Xu Guoai, the secretary of the party Dingyuan, explains, "More and more residents are joining us in this activity to share food, and we are shaping a mode of self-sufficient life."
