We can use all types of equipment for Deer Park Prairie! If you are throwing away things in the greater Houston area, be green and please contact us at HNPAT@TexasPrairie.org to see, if we might need it.
We started with an essentially empty house, after many volunteer hours of clean-up by Pat & Glenn Merkord, Judy Thomas, Nancy Taylor, Kirsti Harms, and Lan Shen. Pat and Glenn donated some beds and portable chairs and other furniture for the NPAT board meeting in June, in case board members would like to spend the night. Lan donated a black sofa bed that her mother had been wanting to get rid of for ages. NPAT purchased tables and folding chairs for the main room.
We could use:
Any gardening tools or equipment: Thanks to a TPWD grant, we were able to purchase tools needed for invasive control. However, there are never too many garden tools because we have 54 acres of prairie to swallow them, no matter how careful we are! Pruners…loppers…saws…shovels…sharp shooters…gloves…
Janis Terry is donating a wheel barrow – thanks very much! We can use more and/or garden wagons.
For an office area: File cabinet, desk, chairs, computer and periphernalia. Thanks to CEC for offering to donate a flip board easel.
Volunteers and material for finishing the upstairs rooms. Even though we do not know the eventual destiny of this house, a quick, cheap spruce up of the upstairs rooms will allow them to be used for the time being. If someone likes doing this type of work, some paint and do-it-yourself flooring makes a world of difference.
Painting the outside will help us with our neighbors.
