Attention, gardeners: The fall “cinder-thon” continues at the Puna Hongwanji Mission in Keaau. Stop by on Saturday and pick up a few treats for your backyard vegetable patch or your flowerbeds.
“Due to the overwhelming public response to the initial sale of bagged black cinders held on Sept. 15, Puna Hongwanji has scheduled another work day and sale of the popular packaged cinders on Saturday, said spokeswoman Dwyna Potter.
Cinders will be sold for $3.50 per bag, if picked up at church, or $4 per bag delivered, with a minimum purchase of 10 bags. The sale will be from 8 a.m.-noon on the temple grounds at 16-592 Old Volcano Road in the heart of Keaau.
