Grow The Change Earthbag Work Day…

This is a project that has been more than a year in the works… we have slowly… inch-by-inch laid new layers upon this dream. Transforming a sandy hillside into terraced vegetable beds. With the addition of the vegetable terraces, our garden harvest will more than double. Bringing even more fresh, organic, local fruits and vegetables to the shelter kitchen and residents.

Earthbag “Super Adobe” is a sustainable and affordable method of building. Using sand, a little cement, and a lot of hands, you can build walls or structures that can last a lifetime. We have most of our walls built and are ready to begin our finish layers! This is a great opportunity to learn the earthbag building process from start to finish. Come support your community while learning a valuable skill. 

We will be getting dirty and working outside, wear closed toed shoes and appropriate clothing.

Bring: water bottle to refill, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen. More info 808-268-2649 or go to our Facebook page by clicking on the poster below.

Premier Issue Coming: Spring Equinox, March 21st

springWe seem to be getting another lesson in patience. As much as we’ve been trying to push the premier issue for a January launch; it just isn’t going to happen. Poor timing we’re guessing. It’s difficult getting anyone’s attention during the holidays and next to impossible to get advertisers to sign on to a new publication during the very slow month of January.

We’ve decided to put it off until the end of March to coincide with the Spring Equinox. That’ll give us time to reflect and further define our mission. It seems that folks are excited to see it happen. It’s just a matter of making it happen at the right time and in the right way.

Thank you for following this blog and our Facebook page. We love to share, and it’s our sincere and greatest hope that we’ll be sharing an entire magazine full of good stuff soon. We’ll be in touch and hope you’ll strive to do the same.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Phil & Peggy
