Adapt this idea to fit your climate and the time of year. Gather a group of interested and dedicated youth and adults who want to reach out to others by caring for their yards. Offer your service to widows, single parents or needy families in your church or community. Set a day and time to come to their house. FALL: Bring rakes and leaf blowers to tidy yards. Bring brooms to sweep out gutters. WINTER: Bring shovels to clear off snowy sidewalks and rock salt to spread on icy steps and porches. SPRING: Plant flowers and wash windows. SUMMER: Mow and water lawns. Help each youth member and adult develop a green thumb he/she can be proud of. If families want to donate money to the team, give the money to an outreach or service organization.
