I honestly don't think there's a single person here who would disagree with winning a bunch of useful tools of any kind. I mean, generally speaking, even if they were, say, a set of specialised woodcarvers' or clay sculpting tools, I think I would find myself picking up a new hobby.

I'm just starting out and it has so far been challenging because the dirt out in arizonia is so hard to dig. My go to tool now is a huge and heavy long pick. It has made digging holes for my fruit tree way easyier. I'm not sure what the real name is but it is totally work the $35 I pent on it.

Tools are so helpful and it has been great learning about different ones that I never heard of that will make my live easier.

thanks

So I'm ashamed to say I had never heard of a horihori knife before this giveaway. This sounds like the perfect garden tool! I'm a fan of multi tools that are actually useful. I dislike having to go back and forth for different tools and usually abuse/break the one I have in my hand as a result. Thanks for offering this giveaway!! We are starting our farmstead and I have a LOT of soil work to do as it was previously an overfarmed commercial space...no trees, shrubs,etc. We're adding them in slowly according to our budget and permaculture plan and I could see every one of the tools being put to good use! I've added the horihori knife to my Amazon wish list. If I haven't been good enough this year for Santa to give it to me... I'll buy it anyway. ๐Ÿ˜

Our non profit small farm and nursery will hopefully be fully functioning by spring, we have so much work amending the sandy soil and getting all the donated plants and trees on the ground and starting seedlings that our greenhouse is overloaded! Tools are always a huge blessing! Fingers crossed!!

I actually have a little question about the giveaway, what about non US members? would we be eligible, if we're not due to shipping, what if we paid shipping?

So is the purpose of this thread to stuff the ballot box with posts that act as entries? Seems like this forum is going to blow up in the next few days...

Was wondering the same thing. I've been in desperate need of tools for my permaculture adventure.

I discovered this website not long ago and love the massive amount of information and advice. This giveaway has motivated me to come out of my โ€œlurkingโ€ status and join in. I also am wondering if those of us in Canada are eligible to win this fabulous prize.

Dang - this kit's got it all! I've been working on converting the expansive, rocky lawn at my new home into some beautiful deep soil ready for food and flowers - laying down cardboard, mulch, and all the organic material I can muster. I'm already looking forward to digging around this Spring!

I agree, winning these wonderful tools would be great. The right tools make all the difference in getting a job done easily. My dad's favorite comment was "if you find yourself working too hard, you need a better tool for the job!"
