Hand Tool and Small Motor Maintenance and Repair for Horticulturists and Home Gardeners

May 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The garden shed can sometimes be an overwhelming experience. Years of tools and dust often pile up in corners and hang unused on the walls. Rusty pruners, a broken shovel, a decade old weedwacker and a wobbly wheelbarrow haunt a gardeners dreams.


Come learn how to repair and revive old tools as well as how to maintain the new ones. In this class we will cover the basic maintenance of hand tools and small motor/electric tools such as chainsaws and weed wackers. We will sharpen pruners, repair shovels and even clean the air filter on a motor. Please bring your hand pruners and a sharpening stone if you have them. Handouts will be provided but bring a pen and paper to take notes.
