It seems so simple: put some seeds in the ground, water them, harvest the results.Â But anyone who’s experienced the joys and frustrations of growing a vegetable garden knows how thoroughly complex it can be.Â Multiply that by 10, or a hundred, and you’ve got the life of a farmer.
So, we are very thankful for people like Glen Hontz. Glen is going to beÂ launching a 15 week Organic Gardening and Farming training program on March 4, at the Kauai Community College, meeting for 5 hours every Thursday till June.
Graduates will acquire “the basic skills and knowledge needed for a successful start in small scale food production operations at home sites and community gardens.” Then Kauai will have more locally-produced food.
If you’re interested, call 245-8318, or you can call Glenn directly at 246-4859. Tuition is $180; tuition assistance is available.
