The Intriguing History
of Garden Tools
Wednesday, September 4, 2019 • 7:00pm-8:30pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR
The story of garden tools is the story of civilization.
Although tools have evolved from sticks and stones to
bone and wood, to a wide range of modern plastics and
metals, the work we do with the tools hasn't changed
much. Seth Pauley of Red Pig Garden Tools will talk
about how garden tools evolved and how their history
informs what tools we use today. He will also cover how
to choose the right tool for the job, offer tips for
digging and weeding more efficiently in the garden, and
answer questions. The audience will be challenged by
Seth's intriguing collection of old and unique tools -
what on earth did they use that for? The artisans at Red
Pig Tools are the only blacksmiths in the United States
specialized in hand forged garden tools for home
gardeners, nurserymen, landscapers, and farmers. Leach
Botanical Garden Manor House, 6704 SE 122nd Portland,
OR. Doors open at 6:00 pm for refreshments and
strolling. Lectures begin at 7:00pm. Please use
