Tool Clean & Tuneup Workshop

Tune Up Your Garden Tools  for the start of an Incredible Gardening Year!

An intrepid group arrived at VMSC on Sunday 1/29 despite a conflict with the 49ers semi-finals – we’ll plan better next year!  Collections of favorite pruners and clippers were brought and we discovered unique ones to consider.  Good company was had as we cleaned, sanded, soaked and rubbed now-smooth handles with linseed oil. We will all be running out and buying a nifty file for sharpening our blades.

Many thanks to Vicky Tuite who shared her expertise in tools, gardening and compostin.

Things to have together to keep your tools ship-shape include:

  • Oil (Tri-Flow, WD40 Silicon)
  • Isopropol alcohol (spray bottle of it is handy)
  • Detergent cleaner 
  • Rags or townels
  • Rust cleaner
  • Wire brush
  • Steel wool
  • Sandpapers (Medium and fine)

Who We Are

 Incredible Edible MId-Peninsula is group of San Mateo County CA residents who were inspired by the Todmorten UK sustainable community gardens and how they invigorate a community on many levels from front yard veggie plots to shareable edible community gardens and orchards in public and commercial spaces. We wanted our communities to be part of this movement.


In California & globally, water is valuable & limited resource and lawns are disproportionate users. Instead, let’s sustainably plant with natives and fresh organic produce, which also contributes to a healthier community. Let us plant colorful flyways of native plants for the pollinator, birds, bees and supportive insects to feed upon. Let us replace tour front grass with edibles and encourage other residents to follow. 


We are partnering with the Redwood City Parks & Recreation, City Trees, Whole Foods Market, and Redwood City Parks & Arts Foundation to dedicate some public space to grow fruits and vegetables that can be grown and shared by all. As our population is expanding, many more living in places with limited land; Incredible Edible is working to harness and network schools, garden non-profits, developers and individuals to find farmable plots and negotiate the logistics to make viable community gardens. Through education and invitation we hope that families, students, young & old will come to consider edible and native gardens as community birthrights.


We invite any residents of San Mateo County who are interested to join our group and become part of this incredible movement.  While we are currently active only in Redwood City, we would love to see our mission expanded across the county with your involvement!  You can also request to join us on Facebook for our latest happenings

Redwood City to host Incredible Edible Co-Founder Mary Clear

Mary Clear, co-founder and  chair of the mothership, Incredible Edible Todmorden UK, visited the Bay Area in  April 2016 with her husband, Fred. Here you can understand the broad spectrum of the activities she oversees that support the home community.

Josh Shade hosted them at his home and we shared the joys of the Bay Area local food movement with them during their stay at our orchards and hospitality at the home of Ann Morrison with foods from our gardens and Ann’s homemade cheese.

The culmination of their visit was a presentation by Mary on April 24 at the Redwood City Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. She was both inspiring and entertaining!
