A new partnership between The Conservation Foundation and The HNCC’s ‘Wood That Works’, led by Ricky Jefferson, offers young people the opportunity to learn practical skills in wood and metal restoration, and breathe life back into antique garden and workshop tools.
Funded by the Golden Bottle Trust, Tools Shed Gold will work alongside The Conservation Foundation’s long-running project, Tools Shed, where donated broken garden tools are repaired by prisoners and given away to local school and community gardening groups.
Tools Shed Gold will operate as a social enterprise, also selling the restored antique tools through The Conservation Foundation and raising money for Tools Shed. As well as learning transferable, practical workshop skills participants will also get a chance to learn about the fascinating history behind each tool.
