Yellow Ohi'a

Thank you to Ryan Peralta and Terrence Toguchi, Division of Forestry and Wildlife, for donating a yellow ohi'a plant to our school garden!  Thank you to Stephanie Hurder who spoke with our 4th grade students about Native Hawaiian plants!  Ms. Fong's class had the honors of planting the yellow ohi'a in our school garden! 

Garden Harvest

We harvested our first kalo and 'uala from our school garden.  A fun time was had by all who came to work in the garden!  Mahalo nui to Kumu Pomaikalani who taught us how to harvest the kalo and 'uala!  The garden club members replanted the kalo and 'uala.
