STAUNTON -- Neighbors come together to swap what they don't need, for something they do.

That is the idea behind "Eco Swaps" in Staunton, a monthly swap meet at the Gypsy Hill Park Garden Center.

The theme today was outdoor living. People gathered to swap gardening tools, some outdoor supplies and plants - even a couple that were in desperate need of a green thumb.

Michael Drumheller says the Eco Swaps are a good way to help himself while helping someone else.

"I'll maybe see some things that I need that I don't have that I can get for free...and give some stuff away that I don't need, so other people can benefit from it."

Next month's Eco Swap July 28. The theme for the next swap is "back to school," and other items for kids.
