First Workday of 2024

Held on January 6, 2024

On January 6, 2024, we hosted our first workday of the year. It was a day full of ʻohana, mālama ʻāina, and fellowship. As a part of welcoming in the new year, we encouraged everyone to think of an intention or goal for the year while they planted kalo. As the kalo grows and eventually feeds a community, similarly your intentions and goals grow with the kalo. Hopefully when you return and see the grown kalo, your intentions and goals have grown as well.

Check out our Education Program Direction, Emily Cadiz, also known as Aunty Em, explain this with the help of the keiki:
