We are charging a minimum $5 fee for all classes to discourage no-shows. To register and pay the fee you follow the registration link after the class description.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our classes will be offered on-line using a cloud-based service, WebEx. You will be sent an email containing a link that will allow you to join the online class ten minutes before the session begins. To assure that the class is not interrupted with unwanted noise, we ask that you mute your microphone until you wish to ask a question or make a comment at the end of the class. Since this is the first time we are attempting to hold classes online, we ask for your understanding and goodwill as we undertake this adventure.

Using Garden Tools Wisely

 Tools are designed for specific tasks and work best when they are used accordingly. A variety of tools are intended, therefore, to deal with the many and varied jobs gardeners face:  creating garden beds, adding compost, digging holes, uprooting plants, removing weeds, and planting seeds, to name a few.  Tools are also an investment and need to be sharpened and cleaned regularly if they are to perform well.  This class, designed for new gardeners, will cover the efficient and effective use and maintenance of tools to deal with those tasks so that gardeners can be efficient, effective and successful gardeners!  Experienced Project Grow gardeners, Eric Meves, Jesse Raudenbush, Sharon Fay and Marcella Trautmann, will demonstrate the proper use and care of tools. Participants will have the opportunity to practice using a variety of tools.

The class is free but please register
