by Jessica Miller (Emery Street) | This column provides tips on reducing waste while saving money.

Three weeks ago a group of your neighbors (all Kubb players) exchanged emails and decided to work together to improve their lawn. Together, we were able to rent an aerator, buy seeds in bulk, and get the job done in 24 hours for about $30 dollars per yard. While it took some serious organizing, it worked out and gathering resources was a great advantage. Someone had a truck, someone had some seed spreaders, and someone provided lunch.
