October 7, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

For centuries, farmers have used hand tools to serve needs on small farms and gardens without the need for expensive machinery. Before trying a tool, though, it can be hard to know which ones are a worthwhile investment. In this hands-on workshop, learn how to use the broadfork, various types of hoes, the scythe, the dibbler, and types of field seeders and transplanters. Learn proper tool maintenance that will keep these tools fresh for years to come.

Suitable for those exploring new tools, or seeking to learn better maintenance techniques for their existing tool inventory. Feel free to bring your own tool for individual questions.
