Reduce, Reuse & Recycle - This is my motto. 

I find things that others do not want and I REUSE them in my garden. It's a way of meeting new friends and neighbors while reducing waste. I have a bunch of pallets REUSED in multiple ways around my garden.

I'm trying to make my garden as water efficient as possible without using too many new items. Suggestions in this area much welcomed. I catch water runoff and RECYCLE it back into my pots. 

I have a small Aquaponics system set up. Almost everything used to build it was RECYCLED, items I had around the house not in use. The only new items were the clay pebbles (Hydroton) which can be REUSED and an additional air pump to keep my fish happy. I'm new to this so input much welcomed.

I like the feeling of knowing someone enjoyed my items before I got them. I like swapping plants, seeds and cuttings with others because I feel it fills my garden with love and is a way for me to remember the tons of beautiful people I'm constantly meeting here in San Diego. For instance, I have a Pea Trellis named RosaLea, a Yam named Marianne, a mint bush named Michelle, a Jasmine named Mom, a succulent bed named Nadja, a Prickly Pear cutting named Sarah and an Avocado cutting named Jim.

If you have plants, seeds or cuttings to share I would love to include you in my garden. I'll have some seedlings to share and my seed collection needs freshening, but you're welcome to take some seeds.

I'll be hammering pallets together to make a larger compost bin. If you have something beneficial to throw in there or would like to help or give input that's super doopper!

Hope to see you in the garden!

    Hi all, if anyone has some long nails or screws they are willing to part with I would love that. I have lots of shorter nails and screws to swap if you'd like. 2-3" maybe....they are just going to be used to nailed together my pallets to make a compost bin.

    I am working at the Cactus and Succulent Society Show earlier in the day, so I am hoping that I will be able to get out and come to your place. Darlene

    so cool. Looking forward to see all the new recycles :) And to meet all your plants. I hope they have name tags. I am terrible with remembering names and don't want to offend them by calling one Karl instead of Jim :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
