Hey, Lakeland community! We’ll take your “junk”!

The Backyard is hosting an official Donation Drop Off Day for those of you who have expressed interested in donating any of the following items:

  • Gardening tools, such as trowels, shovels, spades, hoes, hand pruners, hand forks, etc.
  • Gloves
  • Watering cans
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Potting containers of various shapes and sizes
  • Upcycled / pallet wood (that is not chemically treated — please see this page if you are not sure how to tell if your wood is chemically treated!)

We’ll be accepting these items in the garden space between 10am and 1pm on Saturday, September 16th. Even if you don’t happen to have any items to donate, feel free to drop by and meet us. We’d LOVE to chat with you about the space, our vision, and even better — what YOU want to see from your local community garden!
