Hawai’i Island and its inhabitants are threatened by a number of issues including: pollution, erosion, reef die off, desertification, species extinction, and a lack of food security & sovereignty.
Come learn about how to grow a food forest that helps address all of these problems. We need to restore the health of the land, water, and our families--ourselves. Waiting for someone else to do it is no longer option.
Enter for a chance to win free rare canoe plants. Live music before and after show. Event is free.
