3rd Annual Hoʻolauleʻa at Ka Māla o Niuhelewai

April 16, 10:30am - 1:00pm
Honolulu Campus, 874 Dillingham Blvd., behind the Children’s Center

It has been three years since the start of Ka Māla o Niuhelewai (The Garden of Niuhelewai) and the kalo (taro) is ready for harvest. Every April the Honolulu CC campus celebrates the māla with the annual Hoʻolauleʻa to enjoy the harvest, food prepared in the imu, poi pounding, and live Hawaiian music.

Ka Māla o Niuhelewai has been an instrumental "hands-on" venue for students, faculty, staff, and the community in supporting the Hawaiian understanding of sustainable "malama ʻāina" application for producing food for Hawaiʻi," shares Hawaiian Studies Instructor, Mark Alapaki Luke.

In keeping with the sustainability theme, reusable plates or containers, beverage cups or bottles, and utensils are encouraged to limit the use of paper and plastic resources and alleviate trash in the landfill as part of Honolulu's sustainability efforts to care for the land.
