If you Need Help With Your Garden Chores

calpat(zone9ab No.Ca.)September 29, 2007

I just left the "Tell Us About Yourself" thread, but forgot to put in this information that I found so helpful! I'm not able to do a lot of stuff like I used to and needed help in maintaining what I have. I remembered, one day, that I had received help from a local organizaintion that helped the mentally retarded. I looked in the phone book where I live now and found such an organization. Look in your phone book under "community services" and call. I did and I have never had such a happy, polite and pleasing crew like the one I have now. And importantly, the cost is minimal!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Very cool, calpat! I imagine there are such organizations all over the country. I worked at Goodwill years ago and found that mentally retarded folks are some of the best workers. They are very conscientious and have no problem doing repetitive simple chores.
