2023 Garden Tool Sharpening & Maintenance

 Registration is closed for this event

Join us in this practical hands-on workshop for cleaning, sharpening and caring for your small gardening tools, such as snips, pruners, shears, loppers, saws, and soil knives. You'll be amazed at how your old trusty pair of blades will look and handle by the end of class!

Expect to gain a working knowledge of different files, whetstones, various lubricants, and other tool cleaning supplies. In addition to learning how to extend the life of your existing hand tools, you’ll learn what to look for when purchasing new tools so that they can stand the test of time.

This workshop has a limited number of spots available and is expected to sell out quickly, so please register ahead of time! Registration closes at 3pm the day before class. No walk-ins permitted the day of class.

Instructor:  Katie Mulliken

Tuition:  $25

Discounted rates available to community gardeners with WCG or the WCG Network.
