Agriculture Kit

In rural communities it is still the norm for families to grow their own food. Good tools can make the difference between a bumper crop with food on the table, and a failed crop and starvation. The tools we might use on the allotment and digging the garden are the tools they use for tending their vegetable plots. The agricultural kit includes a spade, fork, rake, hoe, cultivator and other tools needed to prepare the soil, sow the seeds and maintain the plants to produce a good crop. This kit will quite literally put food on the table.
