Master Gardeners of Western Wayne County (MGWWC)  is a non-profit Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) associated volunteer organization dedicated to educating our local communities about gardening and horticulture using research-based information. We are here to come together to improve our Community, grow as individuals, learn from each other and have lots of FUN in the process!




General Membership Meeting / Greenhouse Plant Sale / Tool Sharpening Workshop
May 7, 20115

Learn the proper way to sharpen and maintain your garden tools. This will strictly be manual sharpening (no grinders or sharpening chain saw blades) for pruners/loppers/manual hedge trimmers, shovels/spades, hori hori's/Japanese weeding sickles/Cape Cod weeders, etc. with Advanced Master Gardener Frank Allen.

Also included will be a discussion on the different categories of tools (eg. today's shovels & spades don't have bevels on them to make cutting the soil easier, the different types of shovels and what they are used for;  is an open-back shovel stronger than a closed back shovel, what might you use a spud bar for; etc.)
