Rebel Earth Garden Tools

At EFN, we are proponents of this idea of a bioregional agrarian society. It is why we try to emphasize the importance breeding plants that are regionally-adapted.

In theory...bioregionalism would mean that individual bioregions function pretty much as their own closed-loop systems. We are certainly going to need appropriate tools for this society and there would definitely seem to be a place for light industry that is regionally based and serving the needs of its population. Our friends Wilson Alvarez and Benjamin Weiss, who are Pennsylvania-based, started their own tool company called Rebel Earth Garden Tools, which features heavy-duty, high-quality, practical tools for the small-scale gardener, farmer, forager, and homesteader. We are excited to offer some of their line of tools through EFN!

In their own words:

"These tools were designed by farmer, forager, and citizen-scientist, Wilson Alvarez, with input & feedback from Benjamin Weiss. The line of tools is owned by Susquehanna Sustainable Enterprises. The tools were created utilizing permaculture design principles and processes. Each tool's form and function is highly ergonomic, and is inspired by Wilson's many years of deeply observing and researching the way that large wild animals shape their landscape through highly specialized disturbances that give rise to long-term stability within the ecosystem. The tools are manufactured locally in Lancaster, Pennsylvania using the highest quality materials, and have been tried and tested by numerous colleagues and friends, with overwhelmingly positive feedback."
