OD is not needed. AFAIK it's only available for MacOSX Server.

Let's have look at previous thread on these 2 calendarserver-users ML
recent threads :
"Client library and admin tool" : tool for setting ACL (that's the way to
solve your sharing right problem.

And "Setup for small group/family" : Some trying to do similar thing as you.

You may need to understand DAV acls to set it up properly.

Don't forget to explain your success when you get it ...
