Gardening can be physically-demanding work.
Whether you’re weeding, planting or harvesting, almost every garden-related task seems to involve kneeling down and/or bending forward – definitely not so easy on the knees or the back. For commercial garden workers, however, help could be on the way. Two Australian inventors have come up with a product they call the Wunda Weeder, which allows workers to lie down as they tend to the crops.
The Wunda Weeder was invented by environmental scientist Brendan Corry, and electronics expert Peter Sargent. The device itself is a four-wheeled metal frame, with a stretcher-like bed on the bottom, and a sunshade/rain cover and solar panel assembly on top. For wind protection, or if the sunlight or rain are coming in at an angle, there are side shades that can be lowered.
