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).

The Slow Food Oahu group at Kumu Farms.

Beautiful herbs growing at Kumu

Emanuela tells us how she finds her way to Molokai, via Italy and California.

An old fishpond...

...with the mangrove creeping in.

...and Duke collecting opihi (which they later put back).

Jack Spruance of Pu'u O Hoku Ranch gives us a tour.

Some of the beautiful veggies from the ranch for dinner.
