An Edible Tour of Foster Botanical Gardens – April 6
Foster Botanical gardens, 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Foster Botanical Garden is an oasis of peace and serenity in bustling downtown Honolulu. Did you know there’s a butterfly garden? An edible garden that features double coconut, cacao and `ulu trees? Slow Food O`ahu has arranged a private tour for its members with focus on these aspects of Foster Garden. Our very own docent, Lana Brodzaik, and a SFO member, Kate Riley, who is also a Foster Garden volunteer, will share their vast knowledge with us of this gem on Sunday, April 6, from 9:30 a.m. to about 11:30 a.m. This is a free event and preference will be given to Slow Food O`ahu members. We are limited to 20 participants. Although the event is free, you must pay for individual admission to Foster Garden ($3) upon arrival. Umbrella and mosquito protection are a good idea to bring along.

Incidentally, at 3:00 p.m. on the same day April 6, Foster Garden has scheduled a repeat of “The Beginning of a Garden,” a historical performance that winds its way throughout the entire garden. Make reservations for this event at 522-7066. Admission to the garden is $3. (Note this is a separate event from the Slow Food O’ahu tour).
