Today at the Pioneer Farms, we did a tour of where they keep their corn and where they start their corn plants and seeds. We also learned how they pollinate the corn, they do it all by hand. A topic that we discussed were GMO’s, ways to get rid of bad insects, and also what insects are beneficial for the farm. We looked at the good and bad insects under the microscope. After this, we moved on to the Mālaola Cultural Garden at Pioneer Farms, at this garden we worked on removing weeds and invasive plants that we don't want in the garden so that the native plants there can grow successfully. We also worked on a mulch bed to keep weeds down as well as moved rocks to anchor down the weed mat. A highlight of today would be when we were weeding because I helped pull out a lot of weeds and invasive plants. Another highlight would be counting the 29 trash bags of weeds and invasive plants showing all of our progress as a group for the day.
