If April Showers Bring May Flowers, a Need for Used Garden/Lawn Supplies is Forecasted!

Drew and Mitchell are the two service-learning students who will focus on this drive that is a first for Time Well Spent. In May, DeClutter For Good efforts will encourage folks to dig into their sheds, garages and barns for tools that they no longer use but that have useful life in them. Rakes, shovels, clippers… If you can use it in the yard, we can use it in our drive!

I love how the re-use of garden tools, in particular, speaks to the sustainability topic. “Teach a man to fish” and all that… (Actually, I wrote a thought-provoking post on the fish concept, a lesson that is actually of Chinese origin). What’s better than to provide those in need the tools to help them tend their own vegetable garden?

We already have two recipient organizations lined up that we have established relationships with~ Cornerstones Ipswich and Wellspring House. In addition, the good folks at Biolabs are looking into the needs that might exist at The Food Project, a truly amazing organization “engaging young people in personal and social change through sustainable agriculture.”  Follow the progress of the May DeClutter for Good drive on the Time Well Spent Discussion that Mitchell started. And, as always, if you know of a local service organization that would benefit from our current drive, please encourage them to be in touch.  

Carpe Diem ~ Nancy
