Happy Birthday SMS, Bike Coalition and more…

Happy Birthday, SMS! South Maui Sustainability just celebrated our 2nd year of working with the community to learn about and implement sustainable living practices. Thanks to everyone that has worked with us to forward this cause. You can find a list of a few of the little things we’ve accomplished in the new 1093 page book we are about to release on the subject. We look forward to publishing another tome on our 4th Anniversary. Contact Maury for more information.

South Maui Bike Path As you may know, South Maui Sustainability is a member of the newly formed South Maui Bicycle Coalition. The coalition is working hard to get the long planned bike path along the North/South Collector Road corridor built. This could make a big change to the health and sense of community in South Maui, as well as a great way for kids to get to school. If you feel strongly about this issue, please come to the STIP (Statewide Transportation Improvement Program) Meeting in Kihei and make your feelings known. Join us at Kihei Elementary School Cafeteria on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at 6:00 P.M.

June 10 – Join us for our 2 year Anniversary Party at Kamaole III beachpark from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Bring a pupu to share, your favorite beverage, your own utensils and your mana’o and let’s enjoy an informal celebration of where we’ve been and where we’re going. One of the places we’re going is planning all our events as Trash Free. Look for the SMS canopy and banner.

We decided to delay our Edible Garden Tour until fall. We are still looking for great gardens. We considered having just a gardening event at the Kihei School Garden but decided that it was getting too warm for people to enjoy!

We are moving forward to be a part of the  Adopt A Highway program, currently looking at the highway and area around Kealia Pond. We’ve already been having quarterly cleanups which we’ll continue.

Make sure to check out  Lono’s Bounty at http://vimeo.com/10686282. In this 78 minute film we explore the growing number of Hawaii farmers, advocates, chefs, artisans, urban gardeners, and families who are taking action by making themselves less reliant on outside forces, and actively supporting a trend toward sustainability.
