About the event
Join CACG Orchard Manager and UCCE San Diego Master Gardener, Robert Lawson for this hands-on workshop. With a focus on cutting tools, Robert will teach proper care and maintenance principles and techniques that will keep your tools in top condition.
Robert will begin with an overview of relevant orchard and hand tools. This will be followed by a demonstration of proper care and maintenance techniques. The final portion of the workshop will focus on providing guidance and assistance to participants as they practice new skills and techniques.
Participants will be getting all the CACG cutting tools in good working order for the season. You may bring your own garden cutting tools, including scissors, to work on. Sorry no anvil cutters, no knives, and no saws. Please clean your tools prior to the workshop!
