Guns to Gardens Tallahassee

Do you have firearms that you don’t want?  What about your friends and family?

Guns to Gardens offers a new way to discard your firearms without returning them to the marketplace.  You’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your guns will never be used to harm others; in fact, they’ll be forged into something entirely different – tools that support life.

Join Us for the National Guns to Gardens Safe Surrender Event in Tallahassee, FL

Event Info

Date: June 10, 2023
Time: 10 AM–12 PM

Location: Good Shepherd Catholic Church

4665 Thomasville Rd, Tallahassee, FL 32309

On June 10 from 10:00 until noon, a group of Guns to Garden Tallahassee volunteers representing eight local congregations will join with churches nationwide for a safe surrender event in conjunction with the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship and RawTools.  Our local event will be hosted by Good Shepherd Catholic Church and co-sponsored by the Leon County Sheriff's Department.

How It Works

Bring your unloaded firearms in the trunk of your vehicle where a trained volunteer will remove them for the dismantling process.  Guns must be unloaded, and ammunition is not accepted.


After the guns are dismantled, you’ll receive a gift card, as a thank-you for disposing of your unwanted guns.   All raw materials will be sent to RAWtools to be made into gardening tools.  

Gift cards are valued at up to $250:

  • $100 for a single shot (shotgun or hunting rifle)

  • $150 for a revolver or semi-automatic handgun

  • $200 for a semi-automatic (assault-style) rifle

Together, we can affirm Isaiah’s call to beat our swords into plowshares and end gun violence.

“and they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.  Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore” – Isaiah 2:4

Support Our Work

Our mission relies on community support. Please donate today to help us purchase dismantling supplies, sponsor thank-you gifts, and fund raw-material shipping to RAWTools.

Donations are received by First Presbyterian Church, a 501C3, and are tax deductible.
