Hawaiian heritage plants brought by the early Polynesian settlers to the islands as sources of food and medicine are legacy plants with culinary and healing uses today. The Same Canoe Local Food Challenge is raising awareness of island-grown canoe crops to help build appreciation, grow consumer demand, and encourage our local farmers and gardeners to increase production of these heritage foods and medicines. Join us for a slide show, free tasting, and recipe sharing at the Library. Sponsored by Friends of the Libraries, Kona, this program is free to the public but donations are welcome. For more information, contact the library at 327-4327.
