    Good book for Horticultural outreach to public

    Use of native plant material by various cultures has been for food, medicine and in some cases for decoration. This well-illustrated book with clear color photos will be helpful to docents trying to explain basic techniques of making Lei's or for folks who actually want to give Lei making a try. Hawaiian Culture has always been a special interest of mine and Mutual Publishing is to be commended for publishing excellent books on various aspects of Hawaii. Every book that I have used has had excellent production value and the information I have found to be up to date and useful for the task at hand. Recommended to craft specialists, cultural institutions, and botanical gardens who want to conduct outreach classes to the general public.
