Water is Flowing


Aloha Gardener’s,

The water pressure is doing great.

Give a big mahalo to garden member Dwayne for his work repairing the water break outside the garden.  This effort helped our water provider who would not of been able to respond as quickly.

A leak on ML&P property was repaired last evening and water was left off overnight for the glue to dry. They will turn water on and re-adjust today 8/9.  It sometimes takes 24-48 hours to get the pressure adjusted correctly.

Thanks for all your patience!

Give Back Days


The Give Back Days are the last Saturday

from 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM and

last Wednesday 4:00PM – 7:00PM of every month

Every member of the garden is required to contribute to the community garden as a whole.  We hold these group days to get more work done, it’s a lot easier to dig a ditch with 10 people than 2.  With this website we can organize other days and tasks for those who can not attend the set dates.  Please feel free to leave comments here for any ideas you have for the garden work days. All gardeners must participate in community projects besides pulling weeds near you own plots.  If you have not signed up for a project or have ideas contact Robert by text or email at 423-327-0925,

Thank you for your help

Good to know – from the garden


Aloha Gardener’s,

Josie received some information from Anne Gachuhi that she would like to share regarding Natural Pesticides.

Welcome to this Week’s Gardening Updates

Do you know what to look for when purchasing Natural Pesticides ? Where would you purchase them in Maui?

Natural pesticides  often have the following descriptions on their labels: OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute ), Natural,  Organic,  Botanical, Biological, Microbial, Biopesticides, Biorational pesticides.

Recently, I embarked on getting these answers. I went to several Maui Garden Centers (Lowes, Home Depot, Hawaii Growers Products Inc, Kula Ace (True Value) and Mermac Ace) to find out what organic or natural products they carry.

I found out that Kula Ace (True Value), carries the most organic products. Hawaii Growers Products gave me a link to their catalogue online. Lowes provided me with a computer generated list of outdoor organic pesticides.
