{ Garden Tool Recycling - Can You Help?
Tools Shed is a garden tool recycling project run by The Conservation Foundation. Garden tools are donated by the public at collection points around the country and then refurbished at a nearby prison providing practical skills to prisoners. The spruced up tools are then given away free to schools and community groups.
Garden tools are being collected and donated in Surrey, London, Cornwall, Devon, Oxfordshire, Lincolnshire, Edinburgh and Cardiff.
Clear out your garden sheds, the gardener's perennial dilemma:what to do with tools that are too broken to use but too good to throw away is now solved - drop off your old tools bring them along to the LGT AGM or contact

or to request a pack, please email tools@conservationfoundation.co.uk
Thank you!
