Our annual gift guides return! Each one is thoughtfully curated by a neighbor near you. We look to Sarah Lewis from UAF's Cooperative Extension as an expert in learning and teaching, from the great outdoors to the goodness of our homes. A definite DIYer herself, Sarah is a go-to for the how-to and we asked her to pick goods for getting started. Check out Sarah's picks for the one in your life who likes to do it themselves!
