Enomoto will discuss when to cultivate certain foods based on the Native Hawaiian lunar planting tradition during a free mini-lecture that will take place at 11 a.m.

Attendees can enter for a chance to win two 1.5×2-foot Native Hawiian lunar-planting calendars.

The Kēōkea Farmers Market takes place on the second and last Saturdays of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kēōkea nursery site, next to Grandma’s Coffee House. The twice-monthly market offers garden-fresh produce, crafts, food and rummage.

Two Hawaiian homelands nonprofits, the Kēōkea Homestead Farm Lots Association and Pa‘upena Community Development Corporation, co-sponsor the Kēōkea Farmers Market, with accompanying lectures through Dec. 30.


Waiohuli homesteader Joylynn Paman will be “Taking a Look at Our Ahupua‘a System” at the Aug. 12 free mini-lecture.
