MALA LAULIMA FACT SHEET

 

Mala Laulima, "The Garden of Cooperation, was established as an activities garden for kids of all ages.  We currently care for a variety of food and Native Hawaiian plants with 1.5 acres to grow into.

 

YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT:

  • the life in the soil

  • planting healthy food and Native Hawaiian plants

  • caring for a healthy garden

  • good nutrition for plants and us

  • bugs, bugs, bugs!

  • yoga, music, storytelling and fun!

YOU WILL EXPERIENCE:

  • The Living Earth: soil fertility, remineralization and the life in the soil are related to a healthy planet, food and people through building a garden bed.

  • Native Hawaiian plants and food crops are planted and mature plants picked to taste.

  • Caring for plant health is caring for your own health through maintaining the garden, pulling weeds, fertilizing and pruning plants.

GROUND RULES:

 

While in the garden, we ask that you:

  • wear closed shoes

  • wear sunblock

  • do not run

  • do not step on the plants

  • listen to the plants, they have a lot to tell you

  • and so do we, so be ready to get dirty

Remember that cooperation is the key to health and happiness!
