If you are not familiar with the environment, the easiest way to do this will be to use the Delegates function in Outlook:

If you have many users however, the best way to do this is PowerShell:

What you need in your case is something like this:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity mailbox@domain.com:\Calendar -User you@domain.com -AccessRights Editor

You can also use shared mailbox to host the actual calendar, so you don't have to pay for additional license. For more info review this link:
