Starting a garden is often the most costly part of growing fruits, vegetables and herbs. The variety of tools and resources available can make it difficult to decide what is necessary and what could wait until later. Tarrant Area Food Bank’s Community Garden staff will help guide you through some basic tools needed for vegetable gardening and explain a few others that are optional items.

Speakers will also cover how to find free or reduced cost items that could add to your garden and save some money.

The workshop will cover:

• Basic tools needed for vegetable gardening

• Recommendations on brands of tools and quality retail locations

• Free or reduced-cost resources available in Fort Worth
