Lāʻau Lapaʻau Workshop

At the Hui Loʻi Complex

June 15, 2024 @ 9am


Join us on June 15, 2024 for a Lāʻau Lapaʻau Workshop with Sean Chun, Cultural Practitioner with Hoʻola LāhuiHawaiʻi and Pihanakaʻikena o Kauaʻi. The workshop will be hosted at the Hui Loʻi Complex in Hāʻena State Park, Saturday, June 15, 2024, at 9am to 1pm.


The Mei weather certainly kept us on our toes, resulting in some canceled workdays. However, we were able to participate in a wonderful opportunity to connect with our community at one of our partner's festivals and welcomed great groups at our Hui site.


Looking ahead, our calendar is brimming with events designed to educate, inspire, and bring us together! Read more about our upcoming workshop in June and register while spots are still open. 


Make sure to subscribe to learn more about the journey and knowledge experienced in our summer programs next month!

Waipā FoundationsʻĀina Festival

4 Mei 2024

On 4 Mei 2024, in place of our usual community workday, we encouraged volunteers to attend the Waipā Foundation's ʻĀina Festival. The festival celebrated 30 years of the foundation's stewardship of the ahupuaʻa and sought to bring the community together to connect aina, culture, and community.


The Hui had the pleasure of hosting a booth at the festival, alongside our wonderful partners at Limahuli Garden and Preserve and Nā Maka Onaona. It was an enriching day where we connected with the community, sharing insights and stories about our activities, educational programs, and volunteer opportunities. Not to mention, Limahuli engaged the community with a range of native plants for sale, allowing them to bring conservation and stewardship efforts home with them.


The festival itself was a vibrant celebration filled with delicious food, beaming smiles, and a host of engaging activities and entertainment. We're thankful for our community participation and for the Waipā Foundation providing hosting such a wonderful event!

A Special Mahalo


To Humber College

Who came out on Mei 29, 2024


On 29 Mei 2024, we welcomed a group of students from Humber College, Canada. These students went straight to work and aided our Malama ʻĀina Technicians in fortifying the embankment in one of our loʻi patches. We're grateful for their helping hands and hope they gained knowledge on not just the Hui, but community-based-management.
