We need people to weed the gardens. Adults without kids, please. Until we get things established, it takes a delicate foot and a focused plant ID and weeding effort. This is the most therapeutic meditation and physical exercise I know of! Anytime after drop off (3:30, weekdays). Orientation required.

Barns. Always. Need. To. Be. Cleaned. Anyone who is feeling that they want to get stinky and sweaty.

Landscape block and supplies. We are constantly dealing with trail erosion and garden bed liners and trail markers and hillside terracing. Any and all materials that would help us with trail maintenance, landscaping and garden beds are greatly appreciated. Plus, paver bricks for an imagined patio under the shelter.

I have a couple electrical projects: Installing a couple new circuit breakers and laying some underground cable, as well as installing a couple of outside outlets. Maybe a doorbell, too. Donations of spools of outdoor quality Romex electric wire and underground conduit would be awesome. A couple of outdoor ceiling fans would make the day!

Concrete crack repairs around the house and porches. I have the supplies for this project. I need a helper.

Asphalt crack fillers. I’d like to clean out the cracks and fill them with paver sand and coat with a sealant to protect the existing blacktop driveway. I have the coating, we’d need either paver sand or fine play sand.

Gravel: we need finely crushed grave for all of our potholes, and to level out our shelter (a 10’x20’ patio), which could be paved if we had the pavers (see the above landscape block wish). Frankly, bags of all purpose pea grave. are nice, too. It always finds its way into many of my landscaping rock paths, walls, etc.

Gate repair. Some of our gates need some TLC. I have most of the materials and tools.

Caulking and painting baseboards in the school. It’ll make it look nice and maintain. We have most of these supplies.

Linoleum: we need some in the Little Schoolhouse, as well as the Middle Schoolhouse.

We were gifted some amazing 12’ picnic tables that need the old bolts cut off (rusted on) and the boards replaced. We’d love a donation of six boards that were 12’x9”. We’ll need 60 carriage bolts that are at least 2.5”, as well as nuts and washers.

Speaking of fencing (I know, noone said a word), we’d like to fence off a section of land that isn’t being used. It will take a concerted trash removal effort. The good news, we’ve already gotten 80% of the trash out of there. We would need some good goat fencing and t-posts, too.

 

You can always donate money to help us with our budget shortfalls. We are so grateful for your support: Thank You!
