Slow Food Oahu Outreach

Slow Food Oahu participated in Hawaii Conservation Week sponsored by the Hawaii Conservation Alliance at the ING Cafe in Waikiki August 1. Along with approximately 20 other exhibitors committed to the preservation of Hawaii's ecosystem, Slow Food Oahu was present with literature, information, and a food tasting demonstration. Slow Food Oahu's philosophy of sustainable agriculture blended well with other groups concerned with sustainability of the environment and capped two weeks of public outreach at the Farm Fair at the Bishop Museum (July 18-19) and the Green Market in Downtown Honolulu (July 25).

Olomana Gardens

Last Sunday, Slow Foodies convened at Olomana Gardens in Waimanalo. This organic farm is a rather fascinating place--it integrates worm composting, raised bed gardening, aquaponics, and livestock raising. UH Outreach has contracted with Olomana Gardens to do most of their noncredit gardening classes.

Below, Glenn Martinez with just a few of his feathered friends...

Aquaponics in action.

A good worm moment (versus the bad worm moments when worms are escaping from my bin)
