In South Maui, October is like springtime for gardeners! Our October event, Basics to Bounty In Your South Maui Garden will help you whether you are just getting started or tuning your garden mastery. We’ll start with Susan Wyche taking us on a visual tour to get started with a home vegetable garden focusing on what works best for South Maui. She’ll describe selecting your site, preparing your soil and provide lots of information on what edible plants work best in South Maui as well as how to deal with common pests and diseases. Whether you are a beginner with a lanai, an expert with an acre, or anywhere in the middle, come and share your tips, challenges and questions. Bring samples of blighted leaves, mystery plants, and unknown bugs or anything you have questions about. If you prefer, you can email us questions in advance, with photos that illustrate your question, and we’ll include them in a slideshow as part of the Q &A.

Susan Wyche is an award-winning sustainable landscape designer from Kihei and has been featured in several publications, including Sunset Magazine’s Secret Gardens, Easy Care Landscaping, and the San Francisco Chronicle. We are also privileged to have her as a core member of South Maui Sustainability. Find out more about Susan at http://www.greenperspectives.com/

    I enjoyed your meeting, thank you.

    I was wondering if anybody is using the Bokashi method of composting here in South Maui? I have been using it for the last year now and find it to be an great method of composting waste, especially cafeteria food waste that could be used in the school project that you are doing.
