Waimea Community Education Presents Classes on Sustainable Living Educational Series

Media Release:

Introduction to Sustainable Gardening

This class is rated E for everyone! Experienced and novice gardeners alike will certainly learn something new!

Come join us as we share some of the gardening tips and know-how discovered through a 40+ year gardening experience; 20 of which have been here in Hawai`i… We had 10 years in deep, but dead Hamakua cane soil… Learned much from THAT experience! Now, we have spent the past 10 years learning to live with Puna’s complete LACK of soil, extreme rainfall and draught, garden enemies and triumphs!

The class will offer hands-on instructions for building your own super easy and inexpensive gardening beds… aka “Crop Circles”, learn how to raise worms for your garden, mulching and composting, and how to grow your own ‘cover crop’ mulch in a small area. We’ll have a few fun freebies, lots of hand outs and reference books to look at, models and samples.

Come meet and share other neighbor gardeners and get some answers to your questions about gardening in your part of Hawai`i.
