The Sharing Tree has expanded it’s mission to include artists, other educators and the broader learning community which includes childcare providers, home school teachers, and private school teachers. It is truly amazing how many great materials are filling this 5,000 square foot building. When people ask what does The Sharing Tree have? I answer with…what don’t we have. From buttons and beads to books and binders, The Sharing Tree is a mecca of perfectly good and reusable materials. In years to come, The Sharing Tree hopes to be the hub for donations, creative reuse and community education.
