Featuring a screening of the film “Mālama Hāloa – Protecting the Taro” starring Uncle Jerry Konanui- who will be at this event to talk-story and share his love and knowledge of kalo (taro) with us! After 8 months of growth at the Kaua`i Community College farm, 43 varieties of taro were harvested over last weekend. The huli (cuttings used for propagating taro) are being distributed to planters all over Kaua`i. Many of these are rare traditional Hawaiian varieties that are prized for their beauty and superior eating quality. Now you can sample dozens of varieties and network with other taro lovers at this unprecedented dining event.
