Ann Tanaka presents how to start plants from seeds, potting mix, fertilizer,
watering, transplanting, plant care, and gentle pest control, focusing on
leafy greens and tomatoes. She will also describe other things that are easy
for the backyard gardener to grow in the ground, such as papaya, but will
concentrate on container veggies.

Ann Tanaka is a Master Gardener under the University of Hawaii College of
Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources. She also did a minimum of 40 hours
of volunteer work a year teaching people research-based information on home
gardening. Ann works as an engineer for the U.S. Naval Facilities
Engineering Command at Pearl Harbor. Her job experiences include working as
a Civil Engineer, Environmental Engineer, and now a General Engineer for our
Public Works Department. She is also a certified volunteer for the American
Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery program, as she is a cancer survivor. She
hopes to convey that she has no special skills, no background in farming,
not much time, and only a tiny lot that is not conducive to gardening, but
even she can grow something fresh and nutritious to eat. So if she can do
it, so can you!
