“I was totally blown away by the Tool Library! With the Tool Library and your creativity, you can do anything. Everything you need is here, and you don’t have to figure out how you’re going to buy – and then store – tools and equipment. Just get a Tool Library membership.” ~ Fawn Winterwood, founder and farmer at Mother’s Peace Urban Garden
