Plant Aloha Series
Hawaiian Sanctuary is proud to present: Plant Aloha, a FREE educational series of sustainable farming classes. Every Thursday morning, from 9:00am until 12:30pm, with special Saturday monthly offerings, led by local and visiting experts.
The Plant Aloha project is supported, in part, by the County of Hawaii, Research & Development. We are looking for support to complete and enhance this amazing FREE program. Please give what you can.
Plant Aloha begins with a Permaculture Series on Thursday mornings entitled: Growing a Complete Diet with Permaculture Principles: Tropical Subsistence Gardening, with Wade Bauer. Each month, a special free Saturday class will also be held. These classes will feature lectures covering a wide range of agricultural topics, such as Beekeeping, Fungi, Bamboo, Biochar, and more.
Each class starts promptly with a lecture and Q&A before a hands-on farm experience. Come prepared with notepad and writing utensil, closed toed shoes, sun hat, and gloves.

Space is limited, please register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shane “bee charmer” Lee has always had a special connection with bees as long as he can remember. His deep connection began in Arizona with the African “killer” bee. Hearing of colony collapse disorder prompted the charming to begin. As he came to understand all that bees are responsible for, he started a non-profit, The Gentle Hive Foundation.
