Aloha Kākou! E hele mai!
Community Work Day
Saturday, July 6th 11 am – 3 pm
(*please note the time change for this month only)

In December of last year, with the help of Master Hale Builder, Kumu Francis Sinenci and hoaaloha from Hale Hale Kuhi Kuhi, the E Alu Pū network, Kuaʻāina Ulu ʻAuamo, and skilled hale builders from across the paeʻāina, we laid the kahua (foundation) for a hale at Kaʻonohi Loʻi. For this month’s First Saturday Community Workday, we will continue this laulima work.  We envision this place to be a gathering space for community building, ʻāina restoration, and friendship, and we invite you to come learn and build hale with us!

All ages are welcome, but this month in particular we need a core group of strong backs and hands to help put in the rest of the posts and debark and prepare wood for olokea (scaffolding). 

Please park at Sears Pearlridge at 98-180 Kamehameha Highway and walk down the road next to Sumida Farm. Kaʻonohi Loʻi is at the end of the road.

Things to bring:

  • Recommended long sleeve shirts and other clothes that can get wet and muddy
  • Tabis, work boots, or closed toe shoes that can get wet and muddy
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Water and water bottle
  • Gloves and tools (pick, shovel, sickle)
  • A small dish for potluck
  • Friends!

Please feel free to forward this email on to any who may be interested. Mahalo!
