NH Guns To Gardens - Spring 2024

Guns to Gardens provides an opportunity for community members to safely dispose of unwanted firearms without putting them back out on the market. Community members are encouraged to bring unwanted, unloaded firearms to be dismantled and turned into more beautiful, less harmful, things like art or garden tools!

Guns to Gardens Steps

  1. Bring your unwanted, unloaded firearms in the rear of your vehicle.  Your identity may remain anonymous.  No loaded firearms are allowed on the premises.
  2. A volunteer will guide you through the process when you arrive. Please remain in your vehicle at all times. 
  3. The gun(s) will be removed from your vehicle by a volunteer who will deliver it to the chop saw operator. 
  4. Volunteers will safely dispose of your gun using ATF guidelines. Scrap metal and wood from the firearms will go to artists to be transformed into gardening tools and other works of art.

About Guns to Gardens

The NH Guns to Gardens June 2024 event is hosted by GunSense NH, a project of Granite State Progress and Engage New Hampshire, the NH Council of Churches, Kent Street Coalition, the Greater Concord Interfaith Council, the NH Conference of United Church of Christ, and other members of the NH Gun Violence Prevention Coalition, with generous support from the NH Charitable Foundation Gilly Fund. The first Guns to Gardens began as a project of New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence and has grown into a nationwide effort to reduce the number of unwanted guns (and thereby gun deaths) in our country.  Supporting organizations include RAWtools, The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship, and the Gun Safety Alliance.
