Living History of the South Maui Region (2)

DATE CHANGE to Friday, June 25  6:30-8:00 PM
Kalama Heights Retirement Center, Garden Room


Due to several conflicts with the Maui Film Festival activities we are rescheduling the Living History study group to meet the following Friday on June 25th.

This is the  second meeting in our cultural studies series on “Journey of Knowing the Lands of Kula and Honua’ula” (the traditional districts now known as South Maui). We continue to talk story with Lucienne DeNaie, co-author of Project Ka’eo. Please contact Teri Leonard at teri at southmauisustainability dot org for more information.

Feel free to join us even if you missed the opening and join us for future discussions and walks. We invite local residents and kupuna with knowledge of the area to share their mana’o. We anticipate that this will be about a year-long journey that includes monthly discussions and field trips such as walks in the makai and mauka areas of South Maui.

You can download the book or an Executive Summary at
http://projectkaeo.blogspot.com/. The book is a large, lengthy download – so give it time. CD’s will be available for free at the meeting.

Please use the makai driveway (lower parking lot) for easy access to the garden room.

Kihei School Garden Work and Learn Day

Saturday, June 12
8:00 – 10:00 A.M.
Kihei Elementary School

Please join us at the garden for a morning of spring garden tasks and ‘summerizing’ the garden for the summer school break. Enjoy tending vegetables, pulling out spent crops, weeding, mulching, and helping us build two compost bins if you’re so inclined! Your Kokua helps us keep the garden maintained through the summer school break. Please dress in comfortable gardening clothes and closed-toed shoes, a hat and apply plenty of sunscreen! We’ll provide some snacks and water. Please bring your own cup or bottle.

We ask that you let us know if you can make it so we know how many to plan for. To RSVP or if you’d like to sign up to be a team leader for one of the maintenance areas or for building the compost bins, call Nio at (808)280.5308 or email Nio at SouthMauiSustainability dot org.

Regular Garden Event:
Our monthly workdays are usually held on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 8 to 11 am (unless otherwise noted.) These work and learn days allow South Maui Sustainability to keep our school gardens in good shape and provide opportunities for larger scale projects to be accomplished. We also love how much learning goes on as we share with each other in the garden. New volunteers from the community are always encourage to come join us!
