In the beginning in 2006:
Here’s our new fruit tree nursery. We’re propagating species such as: abiu, avocado, cacao (chocolate), mango, jackfruit, rollinia, soursop, mamae zapote, and many more to plant at La’akea and to plant in other landscapes throughout the big island. In addition to maintaining our existing orchard areas, we are preparing to plant hundreds of new fruit trees at La’akea. La’akea began as a lime and guava orchard and over 100 of these trees remain.
Here’s us harvesting water weeds (azolla) from the Meadow Pond. We’re clearing more surface area for swimming and using the weeds to mulch and fertilizer our apple bananna grove next to the pond.
We’ve revamped our aquaculture tanks which grow plants and fish, and will soon provide nutrient rich water to our gardens and nursery area.
