Five kumu from HonCC along with 20 students came out Saturday to Lo’i Kalo Park in Kalihi where they practice “malama ‘aina (caring for the land). They cleared an area of overgrowth where the spring of HonCC’s campus Mala o Niuhelewai lo’i is located.
After the work was done, the group planted kalo to commemorate the day.
The next Malama ‘Aina Day (a service learning opportunity for HonCC students) will be on the campus itself, February 10, at Mala o Niuhelewai (located next to the Children’s Center). Come and join with others to malama ‘Raina.”
HonCC automotive instructor Robert Silva is inviting staff, faculty and students to participate in a community service project from 8 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Lo’i kalo park in Kapalama. Silva and others have been working to restore the natural spring in the park.
The entrance to the park is on the makai side of School Street right past (diamond head bound) the Mexican Restaurant.
The latest print edition of Ka La is now available throughout the campus.
