People working together can replace the need for gas-powered tillers and tractors. A broadfork loosens the soil with less disruption, followed by gardeners with root-hooks to rake out the clods and free the soil of weeds. The area is then ready for planting. The Broadfork is a featured implement in The Urban Ag Team Tool Library, a shared resource for all gardeners.
