Natural Farming in Downtown Hilo

Natural Farming Hawai’i has an extraordinary opportunity to work with the Hilo Downtown Improvement Association to beautify Hilo with edible food plantings!

We are starting with a planting between Mamo, Kilauea and Keawe Streets.

We broke ground on the Summer Solstice making four mounds to plant Kalo and two pits to plant sweet potato. Our goal is to plant traditional Hawai’ian canoe crops that have been proven as staple food sources all around downtown Hilo.

Josiah Hunt graciously donated enough BioChar and CharFish to do our entire garden right. The BioChar gives the IMO a place to live and acts as a soil stabilizer.

This is an ongoing project, contact if you would like to get involved. Stay tuned for more.
