Wish List

Wish List updated February, 2020

One of the goals of the "Sharing Gardens" project is to demonstrate how materials that might otherwise be headed for the burn-pile or landfill can be "re-purposed" and find new life serving those in need in our community (we call it re-usery!).

All donations are tax-deductible; ask us for a receipt.

Please call before bringing donations to the garden or to arrange for pick-up.

Garden Materials/Plants: 
  • Metal watering can  
  • Mud boots: some of our volunteers are low-income and can't afford mud boots. We will keep them on-hand for use in the garden. All sizes welcome.  
  • Tree saplings/plant starts: particularly native or edible species. 
  • Bamboo poles: All sizes needed but particularly prefer long and sturdy.
  • Leaves, grass clippings: Here's a link describing how we use them in the gardens to increase fertility: LINK
  • Garden Tools
  • Hoses
  • Gloves
    We can always use straw and hay donations, year round. We practice a deep-mulch method of gardening and have used many tons per year of straw on our garden paths. Spoiled is OK, as long as it's not too wet and heavy. We don't have the means to pick it up but can reimburse you for time/gas if you deliver. Tax receipt also available.
