Rayco Painting boasts more than 25 years of wall-coloring experience and staffs a team of brush-brandishing aces who'll splash new life into your poorly toned or peeling vertical surfaces. Before beginning the interior painting, the crew will mask and cover floors and touch up small wall blemishes, such as nail holes, kick marks, and cracks. Then, using the two gallons of interior flat paint that you provide, they'll launch into a painting frenzy, leaving your walls filled with an even layer of color and void of any accidental art. Afterward, the workers will tidy up the job site, walk through with the customer for a final inspection, and label any necessary touch-up paint.

If Jazzercise is a fleeting '80s memory for you, like your Betamax tape of ALF reruns or the "Frankie Say Relax" T-shirt you wear when bleaching the ceiling, today's Groupon gives you a chance to discover how the exercise phenomenon evolved into one of today's best total body workouts. Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Expect to burn up to 500 calories during each round. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though you won't need her moves to get the most out of your class. Review basic moves online before you go.

With daily access to fresh, affordable, homegrown vegetables, people can enjoy a healthier lifestyle while also helping their community become more productive and sustainable. Valley Verde works toward this vision for the residents of Santa Clara County. The staff teach individuals from low-income families how to grow and maintain their own organic vegetable gardens through classes and mentoring services, so they can become self-sufficient, lifelong gardeners and share their gardening knowledge with other residents in their communities. To help these low-income families start home gardens at no cost, Valley Verde sells gardening services and kits, using the proceeds to pay for supplies and seedlings. The organization also works to improve the health of Santa Clara County residents through collaborations that help improve existing food system polices and raise awareness of health and environmental issues.
