Story & Experience

This year we were wont to find garbage because the area is continuing to be cared for. The body of the RadJoy Bird is from a weed called cleavers that has a sticky property. The only refuse is the large part of the eye, which is a plastic bottle cap. Autumn and I have witnessed much clean-up of this area, so we love going back to see how it changes in positive ways from year to year.
