About Tom Purdy
Tom Purdy started in the restaurant business in Waikiki in 1971 as a busboy. After selling his interest in a 150 seat seafood house on Kauai in 1990 he left restaurants for radio. Ten years as a deejay on Kauai, in Honolulu and in Seattle passed too quickly. The radio business was changing and highly unstructured personalities like Tom were finding theÊcorporate culture unwelcoming. Stints as a caterer and inÊhospice settings sufficed to keep body and soul together but, things were brewing on Tom's palate. All those years around food service had left him with an index of tastes and textures. Taro, one of his favorite foods,Êwas underused and Tom started Taro Delight to address that fact.

Keith Rose here.

I’m organizing the ‘350 Honolulu’ rally to take place on Saturday October 24, 2009 from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the State Capitol.

On that day throughout the world, rallies will be held to raise awareness of climate change and to establish a goal of 350 parts per million of CO2. This movement is in preparation for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen December 7-18, 2009.

This 350 ppm number is The Most Important Number in the World and is a tangible and appropriate goal that our leaders need to have in mind going into the Conference.

We want to make an iconic image from Honolulu and what I had in mind is to form a large human ‘350’ in front of the Capitol Building. I want to have this assembled for photo at 3:50 p.m. If we have enough people we’ll form a human lei around the building.

I have the permit for the rally and want your support and participation for this event. As an environmental leader, please spread the word to your circle of influence.

Please see Thos organization and movement is founded by Bill McKibben.

I look forward to hearing from you and let’s make this the most significant environmental rally to date!

Sustainably yours,
Keith Rose
Organizer of 350 Honolulu
