“The kupukupu fern is one of the first plants to bring life back to the land after a lava flow. Our goal is for Kupu and its programs to restore life to the land, ocean, communities, and to the individuals we serve,” says John Leong CEO of PONO PACIFIC & KUPU HAWAIʻI.
KUPU HAWAIʻI, a Honolulu-based non-profit, affirms the Hawaiian notion of “ma ka hana ka ʻike” or “in working one learns.” This approach has led to the creation of hundreds of green internships and service-learning opportunities to support more than 100 partner sites across Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region. A portion of proceeds from this purchase will go to KUPU HAWAIʻI.” - DS

Limahuli Garden and Preserve
Supported by Palapalai Fern Prints
“The people at Limahuli Garden and Preserve take care of the valley by using a traditional Hawaiian holistic land management approach and live in perpetuation of the Hawaiian culture. Working there, I learned that relationships to each other and to the land are the true measure of strength and resilience in the face of change.
I remember fondly Aunty Lahela Chandler, Aunty Aloha as many know her, greeting everyone with warmth and aloha. I see her sitting on the porch welcoming locals and visitors alike while making her palapalai lei. Limahuli valley is part of larger Hā‘ena, one of the birthplaces of Hula and an ancient hula school. Some speculate that Limahuli, which means turning hands, as in ‘hands that work and turn the aina‘ (land), was a valley that provided food for hula students and the community that called the place home. Today, Limahuli continues to metaphorically and literally feed students and anyone who comes there ready to learn.” - DS
