Time to Get (Your Tools) Sharp
Bring garden tools to the Somerville Garden Club meeting on Wednesday, March 10, for a demonstration by woodworker Beth Ireland on how to get and keep them sharp.
Pruning shears, loppers, lawn mowers, and hedge clippers all last longer and perform better with a well- maintained cutting edge. Woodworker Beth Ireland will demonstrate simple, easy to use abrasives and stones, sandpaper and grinding wheels. Bring your favorite pruners and clippers for the hands-on sharpening session.
