Last Week of MG Classwork!

>> Monday, April 05, 2010

Actually, I am sad to say that this week is our last week of MG classroom work!  It went by very quickly!  Lot's of information and interesting discussion during the classroom work. And lots of hands on work and take home goodies.
  • We did some tree pruning
  • Janice Crowl gave us her Container Gardener in Hawaii book and some native naupaka seeds
  • We grafted an avocado tree (I am sorry to say that mine did not take, but I plan to graft a lemon-lime tree soon and will post on the process and results!)
  • I was given pak choy seedings and some "compost tea" (made from vermicompost) for the vegetable garden
  • I was given a clove and cinnamon tree seedlings (looking for the right place to plant in the landscape...)
Clove
Thursday we get training on how to work the community call-in phones, we take our final exam and celebrate with a pot luck.  After that it is 20 hours on the phones and 20 hours of additional volunteer work before certification!

    Very cool! I was a little disappointed last year when my classes ended. I got my certificate this year - it's a very exciting thing!
