Community Item Swaps - 4.25: Community Gear Swap - Garden Tools & Equipment - Farmington

General Description

With Spring approaching, many of us are excited to get busy in our gardens and with yard care. Adding garden tools to make these tasks easier can often be a challenge or we may find we’ve accumulated tools we no longer need or use. A Garden Tool Swap provides an opportunity for residents to leave their unwanted gardening items and take as many items as they wish – for Free. All tools left after the event will be donated.

This is an outdoor event hosted in partnership with the Soil and Water Conservation District tree sale pick up event.
