I'd love to see some imaginative ideas for gifts that help lead to sustainable living.
In my yard, I grow many plants that multiply like crazy, thus giving me multiple opportunities for giving. Some plants I've shared on freecycle this month are: lilies of the valley, feverfew, ladybells, zebra grass, spearmint, peppermint, chives, daylilies, lambs' ears, and wild geraniums.
Sometimes, instead of freecycling, I leave attractively packaged plant babies in public places for people to find and take home. I've also been known to invite strangers to share my bounty by chalking a "Free Plants! Just Ask--I'll Share" message on the sidewalk with an arrow pointing to the house.
I share babies too! We could swap, I give out chicks and hens, spider plants, coleus, pathos, airplants, heartshaped philodenron, and more I do not know the names of!
