Mālama ʻĀina Koholālele: Recalling the Roots of our Resurgence
by Noʻeau Peralto
On a balmy Saturday morning in November 2013, I gathered with other members of Hui Mālama i ke Ala ʻŪlili near a popular local fishing spot that most people refer to today as “Paʻauilo Landing,” or just “the Landing.” It was our first day of work on a community garden project we had envisioned years prior. The idea to start a garden down near the Landing emerged out of several experiences and conversations we had shared that had moved us towards re-establishing an ʻohana-centered space to return our hands to the land, and to share the food and stories of this ʻāina with others in our community. Over the years, this century and a half old government ship landing had become overgrown with invasive weeds and littered with the waste of a careless few.
