On the first Friday of every month, instead of talking about plants, we look at a simple DIY project that you can do around your home or garden.
Last Saturday, Mark gave a workshop entitled ‘Essential Garden Tools: how to clean and care for them’. One of the ways of caring for any kind of tool is to store it properly so that the user is kept safe, can find the right tool for the job and has easy access to that tool.
As a follow up to that workshop, the photo gallery below shows the easy methods Mark has set up for some of our garden tool storage. Most of these methods are pretty basic, using nails and timber, and can be done by just about anyone. The specialised hooks come in different sizes from the hardware store.
If you have any questions on any particular storage method, ore perhaps a more general question, you can easily get in touch with us by using the contact form. If you have an idea for a future workshop (we will be planning our 2022 calendar very soon), you can leave your suggestion on the contact form too.
Our final D.I.Y. workshop for 2021 will be Saturday 27 November, 10am-11:30am, when Mark will be talking about his list of “Essential Tools for Home Maintenance: how to clean and care for them”. Some, or all, of these tools might make a great house-warming gift for the young adult who is setting up home for the first time. You will need to register for the workshop to be sure that you will receive the Zoom link.
