(Sendung vom 17. Oktober 2006 & 22. Oktober 2006)

 

"Gute Gartengeräte sind wie beste Freunde – schwer zu finden, aber wenn dann fürs ganze Leben." so lautet ein Spruch aus England. Und weil mit gutem Werkzeug bekanntlich schon die halbe Arbeit erledigt ist, sollte die Wahl des richtigen Spatens, der richtigen Hacke oder der Grabegabel nicht nur vom Preis bestimmt sein. Wichtig ist auch das Material.

 

 


"......Kupfer in seiner reinsten Form sollte in jedem gesunden Boden zu finden sein. Willi Gehlen, der sich selbst "Kupfer Anton" nennt, düngt deshalb sogar ab und zu mit Kupferspänen. Er meint, der Kupferabrieb sei gut für die Erde. Er kann den Wasserhaushalt im Boden günstig beeinflussen und bodenwichtige Mikroorganismen fördern. Schon Victor Schauberger entwickelte deshalb landwirtschaftliche Geräte aus Kupfer. Leider sind die Geräte nicht sehr billig. Dafür kann man aber, am Putzen sparen. Die Geräte sollten nicht gereinigt werden....."

 

Altavista Translation:

 

"...Copper in its purest form should have to be found in each healthy soil. Willi Gehlen, which calls itself “copper Anton”, fertilizes therefore even from time to time with copper splinters. He means, the copper abrasion is good for the earth. It can affect the water regime favorably in the soil and promote soil-important micro organisms. Already Victor Schauberger developed therefore agricultural devices from copper. Unfortunately the devices are not very cheap. However one can save, at the flash. The devices should not be cleaned..."

Implementations.co.uk: Jane Cobbald's Copper Garden Tools.

Implementations.co.uk is run by Jane Cobbald.
They specialize in selling copper-based tools for gardening. Copper is a diamagnetic metal, and thus it does not interfere with the fragile magnetic energy of the soil - steel and iron however do affect the soil in a detrimental fashion.

Jane Cobbald is also the author of the forthcoming book
"Viktor Schauberger: A Life of Learning from Nature" (releasedate 26th october 2006)

Jane Cobbald has given us permission to display her Implementations.co.uk -flyer .pdf on our pages, and we are extremely grateful for that.

The New Bronze Age 

                                                          

  • Copper doesn't rust

  • Copper is known to deter slugs and snails

  • The tools are hard-wearing and will last for years

  • Our tools have sharp edges, and they stay sharp

  • Copper causes less friction than iron or steel, so the soil slides off our tools

 

About the tools

Our tools are hand-made in Austria by craftsman coppersmiths. The blades are made of bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, and then hand-beaten to harden them. Other parts are made of brass and other copper alloys. The staffs are made of European hardwoods - ash, beech and lime. The longer tools are European length - longer than we are used to in Britain, allowing a comfortable, upright working posture. The resulting tools are hardwearing, practical and beautiful.

About this site

 

We sell the tools at garden shows and other events around the U.K. To check if we will be at an event near you, have a look at our Events Diary.

On the Viktor Schauberger page, you can find out about the Austrian inventor whose work inspired the development of our tools, and how to find out more about his life and work.

As copper is not the usual choice of metal for garden implements you may wish to read more about it on the Copper page.

The Results page contains a sample of the comments from our feedback folder. It also has some extracts from our garden diary of 2001, our first year of using the tools.

One startling result that we found, was that plants cultivated with our tools are less attractive to slugs and snails. We have investigated what may be the reason for this on the Slugs and Snails page

We send out an occasional email newsletter. If you would like to receive this, please Contact Us
