recycler and organic gardener for 25 years,build garden tools out of waste stream items ie bicycle plows.We recycle lawnmowers and garden equipment to support our community garden. Garden tillers, lawn tractors and other gasoline powered equipment are rebuilt or disassembled for parts.I use the lawnmower blades to make plow shears. I call the plows earth boards . We accept donations of all kinds of garden related equipment. We need a dump truck to haul a big load of cricket manure for next years garden.

All right...things are moving right along. I have collected 45, so far, discarded recycle bins. People are leaving them on the curbs for the city to pick up....well the city is not picking up, so you can pick these up yourself from around your neighborhood as well. We sure can use these bins.

E..........we have also been working on our 1/3 acre garden up north here of the city.......the sweet potatoes have been growing like crazy!!!!!! They love this heat, and drought conditions. Have tons of squash, but had to fight the squash vine borers. Found one tomato horn worm so far. Our dwarf fruit trees have done really well this year also, might want to consider planting fruits(dwarfs,vines) down at Fellowship. E.
Hi E........yes we saw the tomatoes! and everything else. I have been attending the gardens on Sun mornings, so I have been missing you on Tues., Thurs. since those days are farm market days as well as Fri. afternoon-eve. Let me know if you want to sell produce for the Angels on any of those market days.I have plenty of space. Might see ya to-nite if not storming! E.
Hey E., .....enough training for what! fishing?, you run the boys and girls fishing club here in Fort W., and you are called 'Mr. Catfish' in these parts for a reason! I don't get it.
See ya Thurs. at the gardens. Sunny, drier that day.
ok, so we are goin' fishing instead of planting sat.? LOL
That's cool for me, and Andrew will love it, could hardly get to the pond out at Franke park due to the flooding, but did have a fish fry of baby cats. The huge carp, and such were all beached, could'a got 'em with pitchforks there were so many of them, according to Andrew.
Meet-up at south bait shop then??
All right Ephraim!!! Its about time we can get into the fields. It has been way too wet, but looks dry for the next week or so. I have got lots plants started at home also, and have run out of room on this little itty-bitty 1/3 acre. We are willing, able, and more than ready to spread out into some larger acreage at the Angel Garden, and at the Fellowship church site.....I think 7 acres is manageable.......WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!
See ya there....Ellen
Large family plots for 10 families of Burmese students who attend Maplewood... 2 acres, a 1 acre Burmese commercial sesame field, 2 acres for an African American farmer .1 acre for the church food bank and 1/2 acre for me and for you 1/2 acre. I will grow grops that would not survive in the community garden like watermelon etc. We will organize here at school. My sons will be dependable helpers. E.Smiley
