On my recent trip to Maui, I had the opportunity to attend a Slow Food workday at Noho’ana Farm. The Slow Food group worked the lo’i, or taro/kalo field, learning everything about how it’s planted, harvested, and used to eat. It was the perfect place to learn, since it’s run by Hoku’ao Pellegrino, a young man who teaches kids from all over the state everything about everything to do with taro.
Can’t access the video? Here’s a quick gallery of my visit to Noho’ana. Hopefully, one day you’ll have an opportunity to visit, as well:

It's run by Hoku'ao Pellegrino, a young man (as described in my intro video) who majored in Hawaiian Studies at UH-Hilo in order to be of service to his community. He is fluent in Hawaiian, and when he speaks, he makes you feel (almost) as Hawaiian as he is.
