Organic gardening begins with composting, therefore eliminating the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. When done right, organic gardening can be cheaper than store-bought groceries, can be less damaging to the environment, and gives you a better understanding of food production. Geobunga offers bagged compost for sale for workshop attendees ready to join the organic movement.
Led by Gabriel Sachter-Smith, tropical plant and soil science master’s student at the University of Hawaii, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, and a member of Student Organic Farm Training (SOFT), this workshop will focus on the fundamentals of organic gardening including:
· Practical skills and solutions to common garden problems using organic techniques
· Helpful dos and don’ts of organic gardening
· Benefits of organic gardening
