Join us in this new workshop to learn how to clean, sharpen and care for all your snips, pruners, shears, loppers, saws, and soil knives.
This class will cover a wide selection of sharpening and cleaning materials available to home gardeners, how and when to use different products and where to source them. We’ll demonstrate techniques and tips specific to different types of gardening tools and offer hands-on practice during class so students can get a feel for cleaning their tools and honing a sharp edge.
Expect to walk away with a working knowledge of different files, whetstones, various oils, lubricants and other tool cleaning and maintenance supplies. In addition to learning how to extend the life of your existing hand tools, you’ll learn what to look for when you need to purchase new tools that can stand the test of time.
