Hawaii




















Community Seed and Plant Exchange (KANEOHE)

Kualoa Ranch: Hale Moilii      http://permablitzhawaii.com      Facebook Event







This free public event takes place at Hale Moili'i - on the edge of an ancient 125-acre Hawaiian fishpond - featuring workshops, speakers, live music, seed & plant exchange, and more. 

Participants are invited to bring seeds & seedlings saved / propagated at home to share and swap with old friends & new.


Don't have anything to share this year? Come anyways, and take home something to start so that you can save seeds and contribute to next year's event!

Kualoa Ranch holds cultural significance to native Hawaiians as a place of healing & training for the ali'i (chiefs) under King Kamehameha.

For International Permaculture Day we had nearly 300 youth come to help us to make a lasting impact at Lokelani Intermediate school. We planted hundreds of Native Plants, fruit trees, beautified the Library, Office, Special Ed and Hawaiian Studies gardens. Such an incredible day that was made possible by the generous hard working hearts of Community Work Day Staff, Grow Some Good, Maui School Garden Network and the Church of Latter Day Saints.
