Cool things to know about

Woolly school garden is a program that creates outdoor classrooms for schools. Sign up a school or to donate. They sell woolly pockets that are" soft sided, breathable, modular pockets, made in the USA "that are used to create a plant "oasis."
Woolly pockets aren't just for schools, however, as they'd give anyone with limited access to square (dirt) footage a place to grow green stuff.
Storycorps is one of those organizations that I wonder, why didn't I think of that? If you love history, memoirs, hearing about other people's journeys, then you'll dig this group. In fact, you might have heard one of the featured stories on Morning Edition on NPR. Buy a kit to record your own story or someone else's. Helping others record in their own voice their story is magical. They even have their own app so you can listen to stories on the go or share yours with others.
Have a great weekend!
