Grow Hawaiian Festival, 26 April 2008

Here is an event hosted by Bishop Museum that should be of interest to many of you! This is the official PR release:

Bishop Museum is hosting the first Grow Hawaiian Festival to be held on Oahu, presented by Hawaiian Electric Company on April 26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The eco-conscious festival is being held in honor of Earth Day. Admission is free.

Weavers, dancers, kapa makers, and other practitioners of traditional Hawaiian culture will join biologists, conservationists, and horticulturists to share their common passion for the native and Polynesian-introduced plants of Hawaii. Festival attendees will have a unique opportunity to speak to many of the foremost practitioners of Hawaiian arts including lei makers, ipu makers, and woodworkers.

The festival will also feature informational booths on local conservation and sustainability efforts, a guided tour of Bishop Museum’s garden of native and indigenous plants, and a native plants sale.
