Learn how to build healthy soil and what different plants need in order to thrive on Kauai. Come with all your gardening questions. Eric will demonstrate what to notice in soil lacking nutrients, soil with too much of a good thing and what it looks like to have balance.

At Monkeypod Jam, we preserve not only the abundance of fruits and vegetables but also the community and heritage of our island. Preserving Hawaii Workshops are offered to our local community and island visitors looking to experience the various methods used to preserve the bounty of Kauai's agriculture. Each Preserving Hawaii Workshop focuses on one seasonal item, using one method of preservation. These workshops are smaller, more intimate than many of our other workshop offerings. The small class size enables each student to focus on the produce and techniques shared.
**Workshops are non-refundable. If you find you are unable to attend a workshop you have paid for, please find someone to take your place.
***Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning about future workshops. We will add you to our mailing list.***
