Caring for Gardening Tools

Location Adventure Classroom

Winter is a great time to restore your well-loved gardening tools. Learn how to properly store, clean, and sharpen your hand tools with this hands-on workshop. Correctly caring for and maintaining your tools will increase their longevity and the health of your plants. Bring along a pair of used pruners, a trowel, loppers, or a soil knife to sanitize during the class. Please refrain from bringing in any power tools or large items, such as a long-handled shovel or pitchfork.
