January workshops from UOG: Raised-bed gardening and harvesting honey
The public is invited to two backyard agriculture workshops this month hosted by the University of Guam College of Natural and Applied Sciences. Both take place on Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Yigo Research & Education Center/Triton Farm, and participants must register in advance to attend.
Participants will learn the reasons for growing plants in raised-bed gardens as well as what vegetables and herbs to grow and when and how to plant them. Bring a hat and/or sunscreen.
Participants will learn to identify when honey in a hive is ready for harvest and observe different methods of extracting the honey from the comb: by hand, using a press, or with a centrifuge. They will also learn about the by-products of each method and how they are used.
