The name Kaiao means the quality of light at dawn over the ocean. The vision of this garden that was started in February 2005 was simple and profound. Growing food heals our body, mind, and spirit. This community garden from its inception has been devoted to collaboration, education, and community development. As the times we live in are dictating to us the direction we are going if our focus is love and care for each other then we follow the ways of the `aina and those that have lived in this place for thousands of years. We are devoted to the truthful and important dialogue that occurs when diverse cultures participate with each other.
We are located on Lamaina street just up from the Veteran’s Cemetery. It is open to everyone on Saturday mornings from 9-12. During the week different schools can come to the garden as part of a class or curriculum. We are also open to community projects and programs having ongoing or single sesssions at the garden. Please contact us, we look forward to working with you.
