Kako'o Oiwi Work Day


HTF spent the morning at Kako'o 'Oiwi, a nonprofit based in He'eia whose mission is to perpetuate the cultural and spiritual practices of Native Hawaiians.  We were able to help out in the lo'i or taro patches, doing weed eradication and revitalizing the taro patches.  The work is essential for both Kako'o 'Oiwi and the He'eia ahupuaa.  The restoration of taro patches to the wetlands supports the long-term ecological and agricultural health of the region and our state.
