Current needs for 2018:

  • Food Processor - We do a lot of fun cooking with school day classes and after-school clubs. We wore out our old one, & now need a new one! Click HERE to see what we have in mind. 
  • 5 Gallon Buckets - With handles, please! We never seem to have enough buckets...
  • AeroGarden - Now that the school district has a dedicated Garden Teacher & classroom, we are teaching classes year-round and would love an AeroGarden like THIS (with these accessories) for indoor experiments, learning about different ways to grow plants, & more!
  • Harvest baskets and crates - here's a link to show the basic style we're interested in: http://www.groworganic.com/metal-harvest-basket.html
  • Scissors - adult-sized scissors would be wonderful; need 15 pairs
  • Tool Bag w/handles - for hammers, wrenches, & other small hand tools used to repair beds & hoop houses. Our current bag has been sans handles for quite some time now.
  • Dimensional lumber (treated and untreated) - for new & repaired gates and raised beds; we use 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, & 2x10 sizes; 4-foot lengths or longer please.
  • Tree stumps - The stumps in our circle at the garden are getting old & rotten; 25 new stumps for students to sit on would be wonderful!  We frequently have multiple classes of students in the garden now, and having this 2nd area to gather is very helpful. And students LOVE turning over stumps & rocks to look for bugs and other fun critters!
  • Produce Rinsing  & Handwashing Station - We REALLY could use a good sturdy station with a couple of sinks and prepping surfaces so kids can wash their hands & rinse the produce they harvest from their garden. Click HERE to see plans for the type of station we need. 
  • Solar panels to power an outlet or 2.  We would LOVE to have a source of electricity in the garden for days when we are cooking with kids, and for work days when we need power tools & chargers.
