Monthly Meeting: How to sharpen garden tools

September 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our presenter, Ken Benson, is a landscape architect with degrees in horticulture from the University of Illinois.  Ken will discuss the myth that gardening tools come from the store sharp.  He will demonstrate how to use various sharpening stones to sharpen pruners, shovels, and all other gardening tools.  Members may bring a pair of hand pruners to be critiqued and if possible, sharpened with a hand file.  Ken will try to sharpen as many pruners as possible, time permitting.
