South Kona Green Market celebrates one year


This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of the South Kona Green Market.  

An anniversary celebration of a Year in the Field is Sunday, Aug. 2, which includes a potluck “Feast in the Field.”  

Vendors will put their tents and tables together and dish up a good old-fashioned party.  

Organizers invite the community to join in and urge everyone to bring along whatever dish they care to share.  

The Educational Booth this weekend will feature the Honaunau Keei Coqui Watch, with Farbia Bogzaran Ph.D., who lives part of the year on Painted Church Road.  

She will share the health hazard of disturbed sleep as anecdotal report already showing coqui noise levels, in unmanaged areas reaches between 70-90 deciblies, causes sleep disturbance.  

She is a professor and founding director of the Dream Studies Program at JFK University in California. She worked in sleep laboratories and studied the science of sleep for many years. Now, she has volunteered to investigate the effect of Coqui noise on sleep patterns. 

The South Kona Green Market is 9 a.m.-1 p.m. every Sunday at the Amy B. H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook.  

The SKGM provides a place to educate, connect, and support a sustainable island community through locally produced agricultural and hand-crafted products.
