No-Spray Gardening: Alternatives to Herbicides

July 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Person spraying farm crops

Melanie Bondera, our presenter for this Community Seed Library (CSL) event, has been gardening and farming organically for 15+ years without using chemical herbicides. She will show and tell you how she does it. Learn about non-toxic  ways to deal with weeds. Her talk will include a PowerPoint presentation and informational handouts. Come to learn something new or improve your skills. Check out the “Tropical Gardening” column in the Home Section of the West Hawai’i Today on Sunday, July 23 for some highlights of her talk. More about Melanie at www.farmworkshawaii.com.

The CSL is supported by the Friends of the Libraries, Kona (F.O.L.K.). If you have questions about the CSL or this presentation, please contact Kailua-Kona Public Library at 327-4327. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed. The program schedule is subject to change.
