Our kupuna grew food, sustaining families in our community, and as we rebuild and repair the ancient fishpond, we need your help.

Help us restore our rock wall against rising sea levels, remove invasive limu, pull mangrove keiki and cut more mature mangrove.  And, from time to time, net, catch and count the fish.

8:00 Morning Circle.  Introductions and Oli, before going out to designated areas for work!
11:30 – 12 noon.  Clean up & light lunch! We rinse off in the ocean, then use fresh water at the hoses, hang our gloves on the line and wash our tools before we eat.
