Varied Activities Of Kam Girls
By ISABELLA AIONA
The vegetable garden club at the Kamehameha School for Girls will soon start on advanced gardening work instead of caring for vegetables. Although they may take care of their vegetables outside of gardening time, they must give their attention to budding, slipping, and grafting during garden period. Mr. Padekin Rankin, garden supervisor and instructor, will direct the girls. One of the chief problems which the girls will undertake is the grafting of different forms of cactus. The humble and common panini which grows in the wilds will be used in this special form of grafting.
