poi day at waipa

taro root for poi

my local friends invited me to participate in a small and intimate community event on thursday, making poi at the waipa farm/foundation in hanalei. making poi is a special event with a long and rich history so i was excited to participate and have my first taste of poi over the homemade lunch they serve once the work is done. if you’re in the area and would like to check it out, learn more about the waipa foundation here.
