Join us for a 5 part Seminar series called: Ecological Land Care 101! The workshop will be held Saturday, January 23, from 9am – 2pm with a break for lunch. This workshop is for those interested in sustainability and edible gardens!
How akamai are you about environmentally friendly landscaping and gardening? Would you like to learn how to transform your lanai and lawn into edible and multifunctional plants? Have you ever considered methods for rapidly expanding the plant biodiversity for your garden? Where do your pollinator partners flourish?
If you’re saying, “yes, yes and (well) I have no idea!” then consider signing up for the Ecological Land Care series at Volcano Art Center. This Five part series covers all of these questions, and yes, more.
Module 1, EcoLogical Land Care 101, scheduled for January 23, will cover Viable Alternatives to Herbicides & Pesticides. Join Zach Mermel, of Ola Design Group, at VAC’s Niaulani Campus and explore how akamai, environmentally friendly landscaping practices can grow healthier, more vibrant plants.
In it, youʻll learn to reduce fertilizer and irrigation costs, while decreasing the amount of toxins in your soil and water. Participants will make a few environmentally friendly pesticides during class, which they will be able to depart with at the end of class. A handout of practical readings and resources for further learning is included.
Course fees are $30/$25 for VAC members and plus a $15 materials fee. (Bundled Price: $150 for all 5 workshops).
