Amy Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden seeks banana caretakers
Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in South Kona has a small collection of Hawaiian banana varieties that require regular tender-loving care. We are looking for volunteers to care for the bananas to keep them vibrant, healthy, and tidy, especially for the next Breadfruit Festival on September 29, 2012, which will feature bananas. Guidance will be given in how to care for bananas. If you would like to become a volunteer caretaker, please call the Garden Director Peter van Dyke at 323-3318.
