Tea farmer to offer how-to workshop
The Kohala Center will present “Grow Tea,” a cultivation and production program with educator and Volcano tea farmer Eva Lee of Tea Hawaii &Co. 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, during the next meeting of the Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers Association in the University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension Service offices in Kainaliu.
The Kona program is for prospective tea farmers on Hawaii Island interested in growing the specialty crop, Camellia sinensis tea, producing white, green, oolong and black tea. The focus is to help individuals and small family farms make greater strides in community production. The event is funded in part by the USDA Co-op Support.
The Extension Service is at 79-7381 Mamalahoa Highway, across from the Aloha Theatre. To learn how you can participate in this program, come to the meeting and/or contact Brian Lievens at 895-8753 or Eva Lee at 967-7637.
