      Kualoa/Hakipuʻu Loʻi - taro planting and harvesting

      Every second Saturday of the month is an open community day that we have at Kualoa/Hakipuʻu. I take whoever comes up to a stream restoration/loʻi area that I have been taking care of for several years. There is a couple of malas that need weeding. The stream is always an ongoing project, possibly pulling and planting kalo (taro).  If you’re a dryland type of person, we have dryland kalo (taro) too. We start into Hakipuʻu at about 9:00 AM and come back around 12 PM depending on the group. The hike is about 10 minutes and pretty flat. On the hike to and from the parking lot, we walk through a couple of movie scenes that were shot on the Ranch and talk story about the Hawaiian moʻolelos of the area. Wearing tabis (Japanese footware) probably would be the most practical, but hiking shoes are fine. If you get into the mud, you can take off your shoes and work in the mud barefoot. This is a recent picture of community volunteers working in the loi (taro patch). Hope to see you there
