Tool Drive

Tool Drive

Are extra garden tools languishing in your shed?  Are you downsizing and need to empty your garage of rakes and shovels?  Bring them to Slow Food South Bay (SFSB) on January 22, 23 or 24.  We’ll give the tools a second life. 

SFSB is collecting the tools for Valley Verde, a San Jose nonprofit that teaches local families how to grow vegetables in backyard boxes.  Seedlings for retail sale and for the boxes are propagated in Valley Verde greenhouses. Whether gardening in boxes or in a greenhouse, participants in Valley Verde programs benefit from working with proper tools.

  • What: Drop off gently-used garden tools
  • When: January 22, 23 & 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Where: 
    • 25900 Elena Road, Los Altos Hills
    • 322 North Murphy Avenue, Sunnyvale

If you clean, oil and sharpen your tools before dropping them off, so much the better.  Please attach a label to the tools, listing your name, address and email address, so SFSB can send a proper thank you.  Questions?  Send email to SFSB Secretary at
