Turn Kalo into Poi

This month at Kapahu Living Farm, there’s plenty of kalo (taro) needing to be harvested and processed into poi for the Kipahulu community. Poi is a nutritious staple food of the Hawaiian people, and learning about it is one of the best ways to understand Hawaiian culture, talking story with local families while you work.

Volunteers will learn about harvesting kalo; cleaning, cooking, and preparing it; and grinding it into poi. And since it’s a full moon this weekend, there’ll likely be some kalo planting to do.

To find out how you can help, contact, or for more information, visit the Kapahu Living Farm website at
