      The goal is to teach local residents how to efficiently grow their own food at home to provide a fresh organic balanced diet. From field or backyard to table all the crops necessary are covered including their propagation, cultivation, harvest, preservation, and use. Permaculture tools and techniques focus on easy and practical ways to create food abundance at home. Every class is a blend of practical theory and hands on projects. Occasionally, free plant starts will be available.

      Locally, this series will help increase food security and resiliency to natural disaster in Hawaii by relocalizing and diversifying our food supply. Globally, this series also helps reduce transportation of food, which will decrease carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. Culturally, these classes cover polynesian and pacific island crops and farming methods, which help preserve traditional Hawaiian horticultural practices. Plants from around the world that are already in use in Hawaii, will be highlighted, showcasing the multicultural heritage that makes present day Hawaii and our grinds unique and ono-licious.

      Each class starts promptly with a lecture and Q&A before hands-on farm learning ~ Come prepared with notepad and writing utensil, closed toed shoes, sun hat, and gloves.
