Green Neighbors DC is supporting DPR’s previously little known Garden Tool Share Program , located at 14th and Taylor NW, to make it far more known and more broadly useful. They actually have a ton of garden tools: rakes, weed-whackers, hedge trimmers, shovels, bee equipment, and composters. They also have solar ovens, a shop vac, paper shredders, compost bins, a camping stove, miter saws, keyhole saw, tarps, greenhouse benders, gardening books galore and much more. A cider press you can use on site!
Plus some bonus items they are giving away. Bat houses, for instance! And some “Junior Master Gardener” books for kids. (oh, and they have some extra yoga mats.)
To view and reserve from the list of 139 different types of tools, please go to:

THERE IS ALSO A MOBILE ASSETTIGER APP that you can log into to see tools.
Thinking about scraping your lawn and letting native plants take over your lawn? The wheel hoe can help reclaim your soil!
