BWS Offers Pumpkin Workshops

Summer might just be beginning, but if you want to grow your own pumpkin by Halloween, now is the time to start.

The Board of Water Supply and the Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden will host a two-part workshop where participants will plant their own pumpkins – and later harvest and decorate them.

The first session is from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday for planting seeds; participants will return Oct. 27 to harvest and decorate their pumpkin.

Fee is $5 for the public and free for Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden members. Both sessions will be at the garden, 99-1268 Iwaena St.

Advanced registration is required by 2 p.m. Friday. To sign up for the sessions, call 748-5363 or email
