- A 4 x 6 foot table that is wheelchair height (36”) so that we could build a slot car race track on it. I have a Hobby Shop near me and identified the track that I want, but I need an appropriate space to build it on.
- Recreate a gardening area on our back patio. In addition to disassembling the current raised garden beds, where the wood is rotting, I want to have it raked out and have wheelchair height garden boxes built along the patio area, which would be more functional.

The curator, who recently left, designed a Colonial garden space behind the 1751 Old Dutch Parsonage historic site; unfortunately, it was a very ambitious project that never reached its potential. The space is now seriously overgrown with weeds, and a handful of saplings are springing up, too. Would need to have someone dig out the saplings before they mature further. Eventually the entire space needs to be cleared, but I think this would require repeated efforts. I’d love to hear if there is a scout troop, or more than one scout troop, interested in taking the project on (that is, just clearing the space, not actually planting or maintaining the garden). Besides the garden area, there is a very small graveyard on the site (only about 6′ square, at a guess) that also needs clearing. I can provide an educational element to any scout project by explaining the features of colonial gardens, and why this one is designed to look the way it does (minus wild undergrowth!)
