This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the Level 1 badge in Gardening.
Sharp tools make for easier, quicker work. You may sharpen small hand tools like pruners or harvesting knives, or long-handled tools like shovels and hoes. Power tools are not included in this BB.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- Choose two tools to sharpen.
- Research the correct way to sharpen each tool.
- Source sharpening materials and/or equipment e.g. files, sharpening stones, as needed for your tools. Consider borrowing these or sourcing used rather than buying new.
- Sharpen each tool.
To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
- Photos of your tools, showing the blunt blades in close-up
- Photo of your materials and equipment used for sharpening
- In-progress photos or short video of the tools being sharpened
- Photos of the sharp tools, showing sharp blades in close-up
