Garden tools have been used by human beings for thousands of years to produce more abundant harvests and more abundant life. The simple garden tools we might take for granted – trowels, buckets, shovels, rakes, and even garden hoses – make our tasks of growing food easier and more productive. We dig holes for planting, weed or prune our gardens, protect our hands from injuries and harvest our produce when it is ripe.
In this module of Abundant Life Garden Project resource materials, we focus on the importance of simple tools for use in making our efforts and our harvests more abundant. Those living in extreme poverty in our world may more effectively feed themselves, their families, and their communities through the use of plows, hand tools, water irrigation systems and bee keeping equipment.
