Tips on sharpening garden tools Saturday

Gardeners can head to Jackson Park Saturday to learn about caring for the tools of their trade.

In a sure sign of spring, the Jackson Park Advisory Council will host a workshop on caring for everything from pruners to shovels. The only thing excluded will be lawnmowers. Don Nekrosius, a master gardener from the University of Illinois, will lead the workshop. Participants should bring their hand tools, because the session will end with a hands-on demonstration.

The event will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Jackson Park Fieldhouse, 6401 S. Stony Island Ave.
