Slow Food O’ahu Culinary Tour and Potluck – June 25, 2017
Ho’omaluhia Gardens, Kaneohe, 10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens means “to make a place of peace and tranquility”.  Strolling or   driving through these lush 400 acres in Windward O’ahu, you will truly agree that Ho’omaluhia is rightfully named a “peaceful refuge.”  Opened in 1982, this garden in Kaneohe features plantings from major tropical regions around the world grouped geographically.

Geographical regions represented by our botanical collections: Philippines, Malaysia, Tropical America, India & Sri Lanka, Melanesia, Hawaii, Polynesia, and Africa. The Garden was designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide flood protection for Kaneohe.

Please join Heidi Borhborst, our lady of the plants, who will conduct a culinary tour at Ho’omaluhia.  She will discuss the plants from a culinary and edible perspective.  The tour will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 25.  Following the tour, there will be a potluck at noon.  The event will be free for members, $5 for non-members.  Those joining the potluck should also bring their own eating utensils and cutlery, re-usable of course.

Ho’omaluhia Gardens is located at 45-680 Luluku Rd., Kaneohe, 96744. There is no admission to the gardens.
