Cambridge, WI (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
CobraHead is pleased to announce that the CobraHead® Weeder and Cultivator is featured by Williams-Sonoma as part of their launch of Williams-Sonoma Agrarian, http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/agrarian-garden/ the Williams-Sonoma offering of products intended to “help bring the homegrown and the homemade to your everyday table.”
The Williams-Sonoma Agrarian Collection includes products for the culinary gardener and for those interested in gaining a heightened awareness of where their food comes from. CobraHead, since its inception, has been involved in the grow-your-own food movement, offering tools that make gardening easier, teaching gardening, and through the CobraHead website and blog, showing people both how to grow and how to use the food they grow.
Noel Valdes, the owner and designer of CobraHead tools, has over 30 years experience in intensive raised bed vegetable production. His son, Geoff, is also a gardener, a former community farms manager, and a food activist. The small family business supports urban and community gardens, and youth gardening by participating directly in local projects and by donating tools to gardening projects in the U.S. and internationally.
The CobraHead® Weeder and Cultivator makes light work of weeding, cultivating, planting and transplanting. This one tool fills the role of several garden tools including trowels, small hand forks, dibbles, and hand hoes.
The CobraHead® Long Handle is a stand-up weeding hoe that is finding favor with older gardeners and people who have difficulty kneeling. These gardeners can do much of their weeding while standing, and all gardeners will find it a valuable tool.
Both tools have a unique "cobrahead" shape blade that easily cuts through soil. The blade is a “steel fingernail®” that grabs weeds and pulls them out intact, including the whole root. The tools are also effective for cutting off weeds at or below ground level. Left-handed or right-handed gardeners will find either tool comfortable to use. Their all-around weeding capabilities are superior to all other hand weeders currently being marketed. Testimonials to both tools can be found on the Cobrahead website here: http://www.cobraheadllc.com/product_testimonials.php
CobraHead tools are manufactured in Wisconsin. The Cobrahead Weeder and Cultivator features a handle of recycled plastic strengthened with flax fiber and a steel blade that incorporates over 60% recycled material. The CobraHead Long Handle features a handle of U.S. grown ash wood. Material inputs for both tools are totally U.S. sourced. The tools are designed and manufactured to give many years of service.
