Down Time…

Maybe you noticed we’ve taken a break from some of our activities. Call it the SMS version of the Hawaiian makahiki celebration. We all need time to recharged our batteries.

We’ve been far from idle but just doing things behind the scenes. We created our first set of Bylaws which includes a new structure for SMS. We’re now prepared to grow and take on new projects in a more organized fashion. So much has happened in the Kihei Elementary School Garden that we have several articles to highlight!

South Maui Sustainability is now set to get more accomplished and we’re only limited by finding the people and passion to get things done! If you believe in what we are doing or have a new sustainability idea, please contact us.
You can get involved as Core Member, a Committee Member, or just bring us an idea for a special project and we can work together to make a difference in South Maui.

One of our upcoming projects is to develop a model for true ‘membership’ in our group. Of course we’ll always want to have the largest number of people possible on our mailing list and invited to our events, but we’re looking for ways to have membership with added value. If you have ideas that can help us grow members, now is a great time to get involved.

Some new ideas we are talking about include a renewable energy ‘demonstration garden’ with examples of different types of energy being modeled. This could be in conjunction with Kihei Charter School or another local school. We are still looking for the ‘perfect’ conservation project to present to the community. One of our Kihei neighbors has approached us with a ‘time banking’ or barter of services model for obtaining goods and services. What ideas would you like South Maui Sustainability to get involved with?

We’re having regular events again with "Dinner and Movie" in December and the Pre-conference Body and Soil Event in January. Although we may not be having events every month, we believe that regular events are an important part of fulfilling our vision.

Thank you for your support of South Maui Sustainability. We’ve done so much since we began 2-1/2 years ago. It’ll be interesting to look back 2 years from now and see how far we’ve come. We hope you will be part of our growth.
