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.

Aquaponics in action.

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