Community Food Forest Project Kicks Off December 1

Everyone is invited to join the Community Food Forest Installation at the Community Garden on Kalihiwai Ridge starting this Saturday, Dec 1st from 9a-5p and continuing Sunday Dec 2nd from 9a-5p.

This is a project for the community, by the community, and made possible by numerous organizations, including Malama Kauai, Regenerations, and LUBOF, as well as the community at large.

After months of planning and preparation, the day has finally arrived when we’ll be getting to work on 1900 ft of swales and the input of hundreds of trees, including some of the 88 over-story and under-story species of fruit trees.

This garden will not only be an educational demonstration and propagation site for many of Kauai’s important food plants, but it will be a community resource for sharing seeds, fruit, flowers and cuttings at the bi-annual seed exchanges and through the many community and school gardens across Kauai.

In order for this project to really blossom, we depend upon the support of our whole community.

If you are able, we are asking for you to make an investment in the future of your community by supporting this effort through a generous, 100% tax deductible donation.
