New Post: 17 Smart Ideas for Home Improvement - claudinesivri - Gmail Inspiring DIY Garden Planters Decorate your garden with the planters you’ve created yourself by transforming anything!#1 via(brit) Landfill Harmonic — A Moving Story About 'The Recycled Orchestra' in Paraguay Landfill Harmonic is a heartfelt story of how instruments made from recycled garbage have brought hope to children whose future was otherwise spiritless. It all began when a garbage picker named Nicolás Gómez found what resembled a violin in a landfill in Paraguay. The landfill actually serves as a primary form of subsistence for many local residents; a place where a violin is worth more than a house. Using other found objects, Nicolás transformed the garbage he had found into a fully functional violin. He soon after built a flute, cello, and drum, and then a youth’s orchestra was born. A group is making a film about the project and are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Share With Your Friends
