A note about tillers: FCG has only one tiller available for lending, the Stihl MM55. This tiller can only cultivate the top 3 inches of soil. If you need to break fresh ground, please contract with a farmer to plow your site. If you need to incorporate soil amendments or cover crops, please rent a larger tiller from a hardware store.
Please request tools at least two business days before you need them, and confirm a pick-up date and time with the front desk staff. Tools must be picked up on business days between 8:30 AM-11:30 AM or 2:00-4:30 pm, at the Forsyth County Agriculture Building: 1450 Fairchild Road, Winston-Salem, NC, 27105.
Tools must be returned within four business days after your project unless other arrangements have been confirmed with the front desk staff. If you are unable to return the borrowed tools within the specified time frame, please inform the front desk staff immediately by calling (336) 703-2850.
While tools are in your possession and are not in use, they must remain in a secure, locked area. If a tool is lost, damaged, or stolen, please notify the Community Gardening Coordinator immediately by calling (336) 705-8823.
When you come to pick up your tools, you will be required to sign a liability waiver form before the tools can be released to you.
