Thank you for continuing to support our artisan work and small business. We hope you are able to stay healthy and spend some time in your own yard or garden during this time of uncertainty and restricted social interaction. With local schools closed for the rest of this school year and Seth's spouse at home while her employer the Portland Art Museum is closed, we are trying to make some progress outside each day to prepare our own garden and clean up from the winter negligence.
Currently, Red Pig Garden Tools continues to serve customers by making and shipping tools for online and taking phone orders. All our normal spring events have been canceled or rescheduled to later in the year. We'll miss seeing all of you who come out every year to the events we participate in (GardenPalooza, Hortlandia, and the Clackamas County Master Gardener's Spring Garden Fair especially). Hopefully, some of these events will be able to be rescheduled for sometime in late May or June.
Curbside pickup for local orders can be arranged with online payment in advance and email or phone-based scheduling.
We are taking some extra precautions with all orders. Seth is running everything from the home-based workshop - including making tools as well as personally packing and shipping all orders. This is not too different from normal. However, he will be wearing gloves and a face mask when packing and shipping orders, and you will receive tools from us in your order that have been touched only by Seth within the last two weeks (at a minimum). It goes without saying that Seth will immediately stop shipping tools and notify customers of a delay in shipping if he shows any signs of illness. Please feel free to call or email if you have questions, concerns, or need help with your tool selection and order.
Thanks again to all our wonderful supporters and we hope you will spread the word about us to your friends and through your community. Stay safe and healthy, and please do what you can to limit your own physical contact with those who may be at risk. Enjoy your gardens!
