Mahalo Nui Loa!
In Hawaiian, mahalo nui loa means "Thank you very much!".
We are very grateful to Maui Land and Pineapple Company for their generosity in developing the Hāli‘imaile Community Garden site in 2006 and allowing us continued access to care for our beautiful 2 acre garden! This is a huge gift to the community from ML&P!
Much appreciation also goes to Tri-Isle RC&D Council, Incorporated who took on the garden as a charitable project during our 501(c)(3) application process.
