I run a school gardening club. Hand forks and trowels (as Chicky said) are our most used tools. We have raised beds mainly. However if you are working the open ground child sized spades, forks and a rake or two would probably be used.
We are members of the RHS school campaign and have been awarded seeds, a paper pot maker and garden centre vouchers through the scheme. We also hold plant sales to help finance ourselves. It is worth getting friendly with your local DIY or garden centre manager as they (on occasion) knock down the price for a friendly pushy garden club leader!!
The most used and disposable item we use are gardenng gloves...they are like socks..."I can't find the other one, Miss" is a constant refrain at our school.
I have been running our club for several years now and love it. I wish you all the best with yours and if you have any other questions or queries I will try to help.
