Diversified Farming for Food Sovereignty
Event Chair: Melissa Mau
Come learn about diversified agriculture every Staurday from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm. Please eat a substantial breakfast and hydrate well before arriving. Bring at least 2 liters of water and sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen). Volunteers will help in planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, and processing produce grown from our farm fields throughout the property. Plants in cultivation include eggplant, asparagus, papaya, corn, casava, beans, cabbage, green onion, cilantro, basil, sweet potato, sunflowers, and many more. If the nursery has seedlings and/or cuttings for out-planting, this may also be an activity for experienced and/or returning volunteers. - Please bring tabis (ankled water-shoes) or close-toed shoes. - We may be getting wet and/or muddy, so please be prepared with appropriate clothing, towel, etc. - We will have previously used gloves available, but you are welcome to bring your own. Parking: We are located at 46-406 Kamehameha Highway Kaneohe, HI 96744. Please enter through the main gate (there are 2) and hug the turn around the black building to the RIGHT. Follow the road beside the building and turn right into the lot just before the road slopes downward into the restoration area.
