People are encouraged to bring in their small garden tools (no saws or chainsaws please) for sharpening. A take-home handout on tool sharpening will be available, as well as hands-on activities for adults and kids.

Area Master Gardeners will also be available to answer horticulture questions. A schedule for the season will be available at the booth every Saturday.
