Soil Building Initiative Launched!


These weeks are busy, as the month of October is a squash farmer’s dream as all minds turn to pumpkin.  So what better way to celebrate the season than with a two fold community building action.  This past week, I got the Squash and Awe Soil Building Initiative launched.  Building Soil-Building Community.  I have asked local businesses to “sign on” to the program by donating pure, green or brown compostable waste to help build my farm’s soil.  In turn, I teach a pumpkin program at their school of choice.  So far so good…40 gallons of green waste.  18 lbs of coffee grounds, and three trunk loads of cardboard to use in my sheet mulching.  30 preschoolers served, and 5 classes at 3 schools in the weeks ahead.                                               OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My love of food and cultures have taken me around the world, dropping me into my current location in Hawaii. I have been loving cooking, photography, gardening, baking, and outdoor adventuring, since back when I was filling a Girl Scout sash with badges. My locations may change, and my activities continue to grow in number, but deep down inside, I still love curling up with a good book, squealing about in a classic car, and making stick-to-your-ribs meals out of homegrown goods.
