I have to clean out my home office…and while I would love to keep the school garden book collection I have amassed over the years, I cannot.

AND…I have four EarthBoxes, too.

I want to DONATE these items but do have some parameters  (sorry…apologizing ahead of time for being pompous):

1) I would like to donate to a school with an active school garden in which a few teachers and parents are involved…and will be sure that the books are used.
2) OR, I can donate them to a garden-focused non-profit that ensures teachers, parents, volunteers can either access them or that staff are using them to support school gardens.
3) Sorry…if you are a consultant working with schools, I cannot donate them to you, but you can purchase them. I will use the funds to donate to a school garden.
4) I would like the books to be donated as one lot. Earth Boxes can be claimed without the books, but I would like to donate all four as a one set.

I live in Brooklyn…so you would need to come to me…(sorry)
