Our absolute favorite homesteading person is returning to Kauai... and she is setting us up for gardening success! Stefani Bittner, the founder of the Homestead Design Collective will be teaching a one-day-only, Beginning Potager Gardening Class. This is a hands-on class starting with how to construct a proper grow box, building your soil base for optimal nutrition, and finally, how and where to place your starts. She will also focus on the unique gardening challenges she discovered while living on Kauai and growing her own expansive potager garden. Potager Gardening is the traditional art of arranging plants grown in an ornamental, yet functional manner. Your garden should be not only fruitful but beautiful!

Stefani's books will be available for purchase and signing while supplies last.

Please think of signing up for our classes as you would purchasing a concert ticket-you can always send someone else in your place, but refunds cannot be issued.

Alternatively, you may reach out to us, and we will try our best to sell the seats on your behalf. If we do so, a future credit to a scheduled class will be issued.

Refunds will only be issued if Monkeypod Jam needs to shut down/cancel events due to unforeseen events or low participation (less than 6).

We appreciate your understanding that this is how we maintain our business and provide boutique-style service.
