KCFA will be hosting the annual pruning workshop on Saturday 2/11. Kona farmers Bob Nelson and Bob Smith will be presenting on both Kona Style and Beaumont-Fukunaga methods. In addition, CBB expert Luis Aristizabal will briefly discuss pruning techniques and agronomic practices for beetle reduction. Andrea Kawabata from CTAHR will cover soil sampling for tree health. As always, there will be a lot of information for both new farmers and experienced hands as well.
Registration opens at 8:30 and the class is at 9am at Lehu'ula farm, 79-7350 Mamalahoa Hwy in Kainaliu. All are welcome. Free to KCFA members, $10 to non-members (which can be applied to the $25 dues). Bring a chair if you experience discomfort in standing.
