Level: Beginner

Professional gardeners learn how to take care of their own tools. Why shouldn’t home gardeners? Dull, unmanaged tools can lead to hand fatigue and pain. Sharpen your skills (pun intended), and learn tool selection, general maintenance, sharpening, cleaning and conditioning of basic tools, such as shovels and trowels. Also, learn how to maintain another set of tools — your hands. Keep your hands in top gardening condition with exercises you learn in this class. Bring your pruners.
