Did you know there is a Student Garden, Banana Patch, and even a dryland Taro Patch at HPU’s Hawaii Loa Campus?

HPU student Julie Bertone is the next blitzer to qualify for the Permablitz network to come blitz her backyard – so she asked if we could blitz her school instead!

HPU MA-GLSD (Master of Arts in Global Leadership & Sustainable Development) Program Chair Dr. Art Whatley caught wind of a potential blitz and enthusastically offered his support (and permission!)…

…so we’re planning to blitz the entire campus implement some permacultural elements into the 3 existing gardens, including installing a living fence, no-dig gardening, an awful lot of mulching, and more…

Space is limited to 20 blitzers because there is a small army of student volunteers waiting to get down ‘n’ dirty with us this Saturday.  RSVP quickly to reserve your spot!
