BIG MAHALO TO PLANT DONORS:

The following individuals and businesses have recently donated plants to the Pahoa Roundabout landscaping project:
Gayla Vidunas
Pacific Island Nursery
Akatsuka Orchid Gardens
Blue Cinder Studio

They will be planted within the next few weeks. The roundabout is a huge area, so even with these generous donations, we will continue to accept plants.

If you have plants to donate that are not appropriate for the site, donate anyway...we will have a plant sale and use the income to buy plants that WILL do well there.

Mahalo plenty,
Rene

Rene, Would you want something like taro for the roundabout??
We have over a dozen taro that we could get to you for the roundabout, if that is apropos for your plan... Do not want it to be sold, as they have been from here to Kona & back, so want to limit how many more places they go... not is soil from Keaau, but back here with ant-baits, just in case...

Yes, Carey, I can find a good spot for the taro. Do you know what variety it is? I might have to run into Hilo today and can swing by on my way back to Pahoa, if you'll be around. Let me know.

STARTING TIME CHANGE FOR GROUP PLANTING DAYS:

Due to the heat and lack of shade, which will be even worse in August, we are changing the times. The two August days announced in the previous entry will start and end one hour earlier than previously:
Start at 9:00 am and end at 11:00 am. Make sure to bring water to avoid hydrothermia and wear a head covering.

We will be planting an assortment of bromeliads and orchids.

a hui hou,
Rene

Rene, with all of the rain recently, our Akia (Wikstroemia uva-ursi) is growing out-of-bounds & needs a trim...
would you want the cuttings? or should I try to root some for you (I am good at rooting, bad at being a plant mommy...)

Mahalo Carey -

With all the plant donations I have run out of table room to root cuttings. Would much appreciate if you could do that for us.

You are probably unaware that on Friday night a driver plowed into the median, jumped the curb, right through the traffic sign (now down and mangled) and destroyed all the plants up to and including the first planter pot with manila palm. We now have to re-do an entire 30 ft area. Auwe!

Time to plant some big rocks.
Extra points if you make them into planters.

Rene, I as not aware of the damage when I posted...
I do hope that the driver is on the hook for the damage (definitely, if they have insurance, the insurance should cover, if no insurance, maybe a court order..

The wood chips have been removed from the road and the sign is once again upright. I just purchased replacement pots. Considering rocks. I will start replanting this week. Volunteers?

I don't know if the driver was caught. I left a note for our community policing officer asking if they know who the driver is so that I can contact the insurance company. No response yet.

There should be a report on the damage....ask Puna for the report # & keep checking... most of these types of reports go from Puna to Hilo & seem to get lost in Hilo.... unless someone keeps checking....
