  • Determine the level of interest the community has in community gardening.
  • Learn about what it takes to put a community garden together.
  • Local a site, preferably with high visibility from Piilani Highway or somewhere so it can be inspirational as well as productive.
  • Find water for the site. Find a way to create the infrastructure for the site (fencing, waterlines, tools), ideally with a ‘partner’ or a grant.
  • Determine how to give plots to people. Support people in growing food successfully through education and training.
  • Implement a ‘10% donation to those who have need’ program.

    Aloha! I am a Rotarian from the West Side. We had speakers at our meeting regarding this effort and I’m 100% behind it. I would like to be involved to see if we can’t come up with a similar program in West Maui. Also, I wanted to put in my two cents about the use of pesticides. I have my own garden and don’t use any pesticides. It’s not from an organic gardening aspect as much as it is to let the bugs do what it is they’re supposed to do. Certainly there has to be control and there are many alternative ways to keeping pests at bay. I’ve been to Africa twice and seen what pesticides can do to an ecosystem. We must protect our oceans and wildlife. Thank you so much for putting this together!!!!!!1
