Get equipped with the right tools.

A variety of hand and power tools can help us in the garden and around our home. In our fast-paced, single-use world, repairing things is becoming a lost art, but it might be one of the most important skills you can learn in your life. Join us on June 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Jackson County Extension office. In this program, we will:

  • showcase different power, hand, and garden tools
  • demonstrate how to use them
  • share simple repair techniques to fix common problems

The program is free, but we ask that you register. Visit or call (618) 687-1727 to reserve your spot.
