Aloha Ka Kou (Hi everyone),

Ka Hale Pomaika`i's Victory farm has been very productive this spring and early summer.

Thanks to the powers higher than ourselves we have been given ample rain along with cooler weather to extend the cool weather plantings and harvests. Our beautiful garden has been able to provide enough nutritious and healthy vegetables and fruits to feed our clients, their families, kupuna(elders) every week. Now we have expanded our giving to include food pantry recipients.We can offer them a varity of greens, root crops and tropical fruits to round out the many food pantry items.

Our entire staff works with our clients on friday mornings to weed, build trellis, harvest, wash and sort produce in the Victory Farm. In late May we were able to harvest enough produce in one morning to supply vegetables for  a family of 22, a family of 8, a family of 2 and a family of 9, a family of 3, with enough left over for each staff member to take home a large sack of yummy nutritious produce.

We have a surplus these days. We are able to sell the surplus to local markets to  defray garden expenses. Mahalo Keakua
