An Edible Tour of Foster Botanical Garden

An Edible Tour of Foster Botanical Garden 

Sunday, June 14, 10 a.m. – noon

 

Foster Garden is an oasis of peace and serenity in bustling downtown Honolulu. Did you know it has a butterfly garden? An edible garden that features double coconut, cacao and `ulu trees? Slow Food O`ahu has arranged a private tour for its members and friends, with focus on these aspects of Foster Garden. Our very own docent, Lana Brodzaik, and SFO member, Kate Riley, who is also a Foster Garden volunteer, will share their vast knowledge with us of this gem on Sunday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to Noon.

 

We are limited to 20 participants who are SFO members.  Although the event is FREE, you must pay for individual admission to Foster Garden ($3) upon arrival. It’s a good idea to bring an umbrella and mosquito protection.   Sign up below:
