"The 11th Annual Grow Hawaiian Festival will be held on Saturday, Feb. 28 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m at Amy Greenwell Garden in Captain Cook, Bishop Museum’s native plant arboretum.
Parking off-site for the free event will be available at the Kealakekua Ranch Center, lower level. Shuttle service, provided by Hawai’i Forest and Trail, will transport interested individuals to the garden.
Garden visitors will get the opportunity to participate in hands-on experiences, including stamping with bamboo stamps, making nose flutes, weaving, and poi pounding.
The day-long event will also include presentations ranging in topics from Hawaiian fishhooks to taro growing in Kona.
Scientists will be on hand helping to identify plants, insects, and taro varieties, while cultural and conservation experts will lead special garden tours." From Big lsland Now
