Inoculate and Occupy Hilo with Kalo

Applying the CHO soil preparation solution to Downtown Hilo as part of the Grow Hilo project. A few new friends joined in on the action and spontaneously started multiplying microbes with us.

Grow Hilo and Celebrating Drake’s Birthday Planting

Planting Kalo between some other beautiful landscaping

We got together on July 31st at 6am to put some food in the ground. What a better way to celebrate my birthday than by creating a community seed source for the Hilo area. With all the political and financial pressure in the world, we understand that edible landscaping can create a beautiful source of security and serenity.
