Freecycle - as a way of building and adding plants to your SFG

Post  dmpower on 6/22/2010, 9:54 am

I just wanted to add, for those who may not know, that 'freecycle' is
group on yahoo! - as well as a way of life lol.

It's a great place to find free stuff to make your SFG!

You can find your local group by doing a freecycle search at
www.groups.yahoo.com, as well as entering your location information at
www.freecycle.org.

It's easy, you can post a 'wanted' message if you are looking for
something in particular, or an 'offer' message if you have something
that you are trying to get rid of.
I have received a dog door, a starter set of red wiggler worms, several
plants and tree seedlings. I 've given away old plastic easter eggs,
packing peanuts and a bunch of other stuff that I didn't think had any
value.

It's a great place to find pieces of lumber, compost, and plants

From: http://www.freecycle.org


"Welcome! The Freecycle Network™️ is made up of 4,810 groups with
7,245,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely
nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for
free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out
of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer
(them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your
community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on
“Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!"

For those of you that work in a large office or plant, you can use
freecycle@work - "It's like carpooling for your stuff"

I've given away a ton of stuff, but even though I've tried, I'm never able to receive anything. I guess everyone's a lot faster than I am. So for me, freecycle is just an easy way to get rid of things I don't need anymore.

I have given away quite a lot of stuff on freecycle, but have never had any response to my "want" list. I've requested things like grass clippings, manure, old lumber, brush. All things I would think folks would be happy to get rid of. I guess its easier to put it in the garbage than e-mail someone about coming and picking it up.
