Urban Farming with Island Foodscaping, Sunday Sept. 11

Sep 4, 2011 by Justin Franzmeier | Story Popularity: 8


We're excited to be a part of Kanu Hawai'is Eat Local Challenge this year. Supporting our local food system is so important and we are stoked to be a part of it. Island Foodscapings' mission is to empower people to grow their own food and provide the means and materials necessary to do so. A lot of people think they don't have the time, space or talent to grow their own food, but with a little direction we think we can help. This is why we are hosting an Urban Farming Workshop with this years challenge!

Last year we had an amazing time down in Kailua with Kanu members from all over and of all ages that got down and dirty together cleaning out a banana patch, learning about composting and extending a raised garden bed! This year come join us on Sunday, September 11th from 2:30-5pm to learn everything from how to design a foodscape, composting, food forests and trial and errors from your fellow Kanu members! All ages welcome $10 at the door, keiki are FREE. Please go to our events page (www.islandfoodscaping.com/events) to sign up and find directions to the location.
