More Green in the Garden

Support local markets and growers. Seed Exchanges. We attended a Community Seed Exchange Program sponsored in Dixon, NM. It was a great event. We met lots of local growers mostly private homeowners who gladly shared their knowledge of local growing ideas and best of all they shared their seeds. Herbs, flowers, food crops were all available and many of seeds were LOCAL NM varieties.

Anyone want to help start a local Farmers Market, Growers Network and Seed Exchange in Ojo Caliente, New Mexico… ? Please Write. Do it in your local area. Get Active in Community.

Developing Our Land.
Sand and Clay. Odd mix but we’re adjusting and amending our soils to support more sustainable growth. These first two years have been all about trying different things out and getting to know our land.

We’ve accomplished a good amount in two years and feel next season we’ll get things really moving. Green House in the plans, More food crops, Developing a system to use excess ground water in spring. We did no watering from our well in the garden from March thru the end of June due to the high ground water table in spring.

We live next to a river and the flows can be unpredictable as nature can be. But we’re developing our land to accommodate these eventualities. Bio Engineering a solution seems to be a good approach. Land Sloping, Burmed Slopes and Plants should help to minimize high flow waters damages to our property and structures. We also plan on raising many Native Species on our land. They grow here best so why not.

Share your GREEN GARDEN IDEAS… Please build sustainable community gardens and have a great day!

Creating a Sustainable Garden – Honokaʻa


Creating a Sustainable Garden – Honokaʻa
A small group of Honokaʻa High School Students under the alakaʻi of Aunty Jenn “Limu Kohu” are starting a sustainable garden to help feed the students at Honokaʻa. These eager students cleared a small plot of land last week and prepared the land for planting.

Hololani Creations was invited to help with this project and humbly accepted. As a group, we got the first round of ʻai in the ground yesterday (July 6th, 2016) including nīoi (chili pepper), olena (tumeric) and kalo (taro). Of course we also planted Kī (Ti-leaf) ma nā kihi ʻehā, at the four corners of the plot, and along the perimeter.

Stay tuned for future progress on this sustainable garden! We are very excited for this journey and this partnership to help provide for the keiki, and to teach the youth about sustainable gardening.

Comments, Tips and Suggestions and/or donations of supplies or funds are greatly appreciated!

Mahalo for watching!

Cubic Foot Gardening: Increase Yields by Growing Vertically


Cubic Foot Gardening: Increase Yields by Growing Vertically
When I think of the space we have available to grow food, I like to think not only in terms of square feet but also in terms of cubic feet. By maximizing our use of vertical space, we dramatically increase the productivity of our small garden. In this video, I share some examples of what we’re growing vertically in our cubic foot garden.

Natural ecosystems are ecosystems having to do with pristine landforms and water forms. Factors that controlled ecosystems externally include climate, time and potential biota while factors that controlled ecosystems internally include disturbance, succession and the types of species present.

Ecosystems are composed of aquatic ecosystem and terrestrial ecosystem. The former involves large marine ecosystem, river ecosystem, wetland and other untainted water forms while the latter involves forest, greater Yellowstone ecosystem, desert, and other unspoiled landforms.

Ecosystems are able to offer you with a number of goods and services, namely, food, construction material, medicinal plants, maintenance of hydrological cycles, maintenance of oxygen in the atmosphere, crop pollination, and cleaning air and water, among others.
