UH CTAHR Garden to Farm Classes

Learn by Doing – Ag Skills Training Program

Provided by UH CTAHR Cooperative Extension & Sustʻāina ble Molokai

Participants will learn agriculture skills needed to implement a subsistence/home or market garden. Skills learned can aid participants in transitioning from a garden to a farm when the time is right. Attend 1 class per week for 14 weeks (Tuesdays 8:30-11:30am) and receive supplies to set-up your home-based garden/farm upon successful completion of course.
