The Energy House, UHM, is offering a 5-week workshop in edible "regions-of-the-world" garden design, art, construction and cooking, starting May 30th and ending July 1st. For young adults and teens, 13 years old and older. The program has a small fee: the full, 5-week program (9am-2pm each day, including full lunch) costs $200, or $8/day to cover food and materials. Attending on Mondays, only, would cost $40.
They'll be designing, building, decorating and cooking from one edible garden each week. Each week we focus on a different region of the world. They'd to have homeschoolers in our program, as they've been delighted with their self-direction and motivation skills.
Participants can either attend every work day from 9-2:00, OR, community members can attend only the Monday "Design and Planning sessions" (9-2:00 each week). The Monday sessions include the following lectures/hands-on workshops related to that week's task of designing and building a region of the world garden. [See the attached, downloadable flyer for details.] Participants who attend the entire program will then work in teams for the remainder of the week (9a.m.-2p.m.) to design, build, decorate and eat from that region-of-the-world garden.
They will learn the hands-on skills needed to produce such gardens, art products and meals, on their own. A group-produced meal is included each day.
They will concentrate on these 5 regions of the world:
South East Asia (week 1)
Pacific Islands (week 2)
India (week 3)
West Africa (week 4)
South America (week 5)
Interested applicants can call (808) 956-2248 for further information.
