Kamapuaʻa's Wrath

Instead of thinking of ways to "get the pig" I've been thinking of ways to "give to the pig."Surely Kamapuaʻa pillaged, took and left a mess.But...It is Makahiki season and times are tough for the pigs up here in Puna. My question to you is this,…

Green Collar Technology Work Group Progress (7/20/09)

Five weeks have passed since we've joined the Green Collar Technology training group. And to tell the truth, I was clueless as to what was going on at first. I didn't even know what Green Collar Technologies was. But over time our boss has given us an understanding about what we were doing and for what cause. Our online and offline groups work together to promote a more sustainable life style to all of Hawaii. We usually do this through blogging updates on sites (blogger, green collar…See More

Green Collar Technology Work Group Progress (7/17/09)

Our fifth week is meeting it's end as the Offline team finally gets a new job offer. And the best part about it, is it's right here in Hilo town. Pretty convenient for us. So today our boss drove us (the offline and online groups) to a little coffee shop called "Just Crusin Coffee." There, our hard working offline boys will be pulling weeds around the flowerbeds for the owner, Tom. It's a nice little place to relax after a days work. The drinks are delicious and there's WiFi for those who work…See More

There's no guarantee that the Earthship will be built before the end of the program (even at the pace we're going), so we may not be able to show you the final product.Lately we've been trying to plan out what other jobs the…See More

Green Collar Technology Work Group Progress (6/29/09)

Monday started off a little bit differently from what we expected. Tracy from the Workforce Development division came to the Innovation Center to visit us and evaluate our progress. We explained to her what our efforts up until now have been like and our accomplishments. Once she left, the offline team drove back down to the Pacific Aquaculture & Coastal Resource Center to plant taro again with Joe. They had to prep the soil with 103010 fertilizer and chicken manure to promote the crop…See More

Green Collar Technology Work Group Progress (7/10/09)

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 3:09pm 0 Comments

There was a slight change of pace on Friday for the offline and online teams. The offline boys drove down to Garden Exchange in Hilo and browsed through some prospect plant supplies that they'll later add to the greenhouse. But in order to raise the money for those supplies, we'll have to start gathering cans to turn in to the recycling center. That will probably become next week's project and we're eagerly looking forward to it.

We're finally heading into our final week of the Green Collar Tech training program. Soon everyone will go their separate ways and use the experience they've gained here for future jobs or careers. But for now we'll just have to make these last few days of work count towards our goals. And that's exactly what the offline crew is doing. Today they drove down to Nanawale to continue building the Earthship. By the time it's finished, that'll be just one more sustainable home on the Big… Continue

My garden is open to the public, so just give me a call at 966-5956 if you would like a tour!

This darn economy! Only one call so I didn't hold it. I might re-advertise it with my original title, "Lava Flow Gardening." What do you think?

I hope the event was successful for you. I could not make it I had a commitment I could not postpone.

FYI did you see the video on the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce meeting for Financing Energy Generation Systems? They met in Kona had some interesting guess speakers.

Anyway have a great weekend, Kaimi

Nah, we coordinate the shoreline debris cleanups every couple months in Ka'u (SE Hawai'i Island). Sorry for the lag time in responding. Next cleanup is on Aug 22nd ... our last one was this last weekend 5/23! We carted off about 2 tons (one ton non-net debris and the rest was derelict fishing nets).... great turnout of community members/volunteers.
