Homestead Gardening Program

Community Contributed

By Glenn I. Teves

The next round of the Hawaiian Homesteaders Gardening Program will start in late November. The purpose of this educational program is to increase homestead families access to fresh vegetables. Participants will be taught all aspects of establishing and managing a garden, and growing vegetables adapted to Molokai.

This program is open to all Hawaiian homesteaders residing on Molokai, and participation will be limited to 15 families. Classes will be held two to three times each month from 4:30 to 6 p.m., with occasional workshops. The choice of a Tuesday or Thursday meeting date will be determined by participants.

If you’re interested in participating, application forms are available by emailing shirleyh@hawaii.edu, calling 567-6929, or stopping by the UH Cooperative Extension Service Office in Hoolehua. We’re located next to the Hoolehua Post Office.

This educational program is sponsored by UH College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources-Cooperative Extension Service, the Hawaii Community Foundation, and Molokai Community Services Center.
