Here is a quote from a recent email:

The cultural significance of niu is not lost on us.

I hope the thought that this grove of trees might be seen as an symbol of our need to create a sustainable food system for Hawaii appeals to you as much as it does to us.

Planting the trees adjacent to an organic farm that will double the statewide acreage used for organic farming seems very pono.

In a hundred years, people will look upon this grove and remember that it was planted as part of a larger effort by our community to shift Hawaii’s food sovereignty paradigm.

Aloha ‘Aina!

Uncle Neil
