Spring is right around the corner and, for gardeners, the choice of which tool to purchase can be overwhelming. After all, there are as many gardening tools on the market as there are stores at which to buy them.
Michelle McCandless, city of Coquitlam parks foreman, will answer questions on gardening tools Wednesday, March 9 at 1 p.m. at Dogwood Pavilion. McCandless will help gardeners decide what tools to purchase this spring, let them know what the professionals use in their own gardens and how to properly maintain the tools they have and the ones they will purchase.
This presentation will cover the gamut from pruning tools, rakes and hoes to wheelbarrows, edgers, lawnmowers and trimmers. Attend this presentation and you will be ready for the gardening season.
This presentation is free but pre-registration is requested. To register and for more information please, call 604-927-6098.
