Spring is here and many communities are making it easier for us to let go of the unwanted, unneeded, unused items that have been taking up space. You will find events that make it easier to get stuff out of your garage or basement, events that circulate our stuff and raise money for great causes, events that allow us to repair and reuse, and events that ensure our things are being passed on consciously.
Take advantage of the energy of spring clearing by checking into the things going on in your neighborhood that will make the process of letting go easier! Check your local newspaper, or make a call to city hall, the library, or your local recycling center to find out what is scheduled in your area.
Here are some of the great events around the Northfield/Rice County area.
