We actually like the idea of stopping things from going to the dump and if we are able to up cycle what you may no longer need then we are all doing a small bit to save our environment.
So with Spring fast approaching and the to do list getting longer and check list of things to repair starts to grow we have created the wish list. I have added a few that are on the ultimate dream wish list just for entertainment factor.
Over the last few years we have met some incredible people (You all know who you are), who have already donated wood, steel roofing, piping, paint and more and we can not thank you enough for that.
Strattons Farm wish list 2013
Latex exterior paint - this is not for the house but for the bee hives. Any colours are fine!
Towels - old towels we need for kidding time at the farm - Thank you Marj for our first bundle of towels.
Plastic, stainless steel, rubber pales - Thank You Chris for the buckets.
|Old barn boards are recycled onto our animal housing|
Wood Wood and more wood!!! (I personally think this is just a man thing when it comes to having piles of wood!)
We need everything from:
old barn boards, to recycle onto the goat house, chicken house, and move able pig huts.
OSB, marine ply for new outdoor pig housing
cedar, hemlock for raised beds, building new washstands, and more stands for Michael's bee hives to sit on.
Planks of wood for building hot beds in the greenhouse. Not to sound too fussy, if you have short lengths or small off cuts we will not be able to recycle them as we do need longer lengths.
|Our cultivator needs new shims.|
Greenhouse grade plastic - for repair, or for creating new ones (another one is also on the dream list)!
Plastic Vapour barrier - We use this to put over our straw bale seeding beds to hold the heat in over night
EMT galvanised tubing/ metal tubing for hoop houses/low tunnels and also for the new markII version of our movable chickens pens we hope to build this year.
Blue Insulation board - This is to run around the foundation of the greenhouse to divert the frost away from the greenhouse and also to line the bottom of our straw bale seeding beds to help keep the heat in.
Plexiglass for barn windows
Wire - 2"x4" welded wire 48" high, 1"x1" Washstand tables
scythe (dream list)
water lines 3/4"-1",Elbows, T's and joints
Large non working old chest or upright freezers we use these to store animal feed in.
Please don't just dump these, do call ahead! !!
The list could go on, but if you have something you think we might make use of then please do contact us and let us know.
