Gangplank

Location: Chandler, AZ
Cost: Free, but you have to work for it
Gangplank lets people use its coworking space and conference room for free. Instead of paying to work there, users pay with their time and help out with projects mostly handed down from the city government. Full-time members who use a permanent desk do more, such as writing blog posts, cleaning up after events and organizing the work space. Not a bad deal if you’re really strapped for cash. And the idea is catching on: Phoenix and Tucson will soon be getting Gangplanks of their own.
