Goat Yoga Talk This Weekend Upcountry
Have you “herd” of goat yoga? `Aukai Hatchie will speak at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, about his new agribusiness involving goat yoga.
The venue is the Kēōkea nursery site next door to Grandma’s Coffee House.
Hatchie’s free talk is part of the Kēōkea Farmers Market and mini-lecture series on the second and last Saturdays of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., to coincide with Kula Hospital’s Kala Iki thrift-store hours.
A Kēōkea homestead farmer, Hatchie works as a senior tax analyst with a California-based company and is an IRS Enrolled Agent. He serves as assistant treasurer of the Kēōkea Homestead Farm Lots Association, and is a member of the Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui.
The Kēōkea Homestead Farm Lots Association and Paʻupena Community Development Corp. co-sponsor the farmers market and mini-lecture series on farming- and ranching-related topics. Organizers ask lecture attendees to bring beach chairs, beach mats or blankets for seating.
