Kalihi Valley Nature Park
Big mahalo to all volunteers who made it out for the March 24th huki. We finished with about 2700 lbs. of invasive alien algae (IAA) plus some. Maika'i loa! YOU GUYS ARE DA BEST!!!
In the afternoon, the IAA was transported to Kalihi Valley Nature Park where we had a great meeting with Puni, Casey and Solomon in Kalihi Valley (see attached pictures). What they are doing at Kalihi Valley Nature Park is truly amazing. We can all learn from what they are accomplishing and the awareness they are creating in us all to malama ka 'aina. Looking forward to having them come and visit us in Maunalua soon.
By the way, they have been successful at composting Avrainvillea and re-introducing it to the 'aina to nourish the lepo, grow kalo, 'uala and other plants. Very encouraging and hopefully this can be passed on to other farmers and plant nurseries for further evaluation to see if it might be helpful to them.
