Wild Weekend Workshop :: February 10 & 11

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but recycling isn’t going to cut it. Paradigm shifting new ways of existing in our day to day reality are needed to adapt to the coming changes. Creating culture around invasives is a way to rise up and meet our challenges of climate change and authoritarianism with proactive response. Join Sunny Savage in a Wild Weekend of culture creation, a gathering of the tribes to practice earth-based skills utilizing resources found in abundance in our bioregion.

Register by sending an email to sunnysavage[@]gmail.com

February 10th and 11th from 10-4pm, with special Lauren Shearer of Hawaii Flora & Fauna…check out her work, it’s absolutely outstanding and we are going to create much beauty!        https://www.hawaiiflorafauna.com/about/

Free Zipline Tour for Foraging

Some people just go zipping by, but we’ll be on the ground at Skyline EcoAdventures foraging for haole koa (Leucaena leucocephala). Because we will be traveling via 4×4 to a remote part of the property, we only have spots for 13 people! Please sign-up by emailing me at sunnysavage[@]gmail.com to confirm your spot. This is such an exciting project, as we will be clearing the haole koa with assistance from Joseph Imhoff, native plant extraordinaire, to release its stranglehold on native plants. Join us for this unique adventure, and Joe has even included a free zipline voucher (to be used at a later date) for all those participating!!!

JANUARY 28th

9:30 – 3:30    (you’ll receive meeting location once you RSVP)

Please bring your own water bottle, wear long pants and sturdy shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen and/or hat, and work gloves if you have them. Anyone under 18 should have a guardian with them, and we will all sign a liability release form.

Come enjoy the sun, good people, and learn about and participate in our dynamic ecosystems.

Temporarily Closed for Repairs

The end of 2017 dealt us a few blows leading to a temporary closure of the food truck. A slow draw from the battery system unknowingly drained our Simpliphi battery in the solar system, and the charger needed to replenish it needed to be ordered and shipped across the big blue sea. Secondly, the truck used to pull our little purple gypsy wagon had wheel bearings that went out and the studs that hold the wheels in place totally wore away…so the front end is currently being rebuilt and is another hurry up and wait scenario as parts arrive across the ocean.

We have been so generously blessed with all of your support in 2017 and are grateful we made it this long with no snafu’s. We’ll be back up and running as soon as we can to provide you with delicious wildcrafted foods straight from Maui nei.

So incredibly jazzed to have a spotlight shined in such a big way on our little food truck. I love sharing the deliciousness of the land with people, and when its tied in together with the feel good nature of also help with conservation efforts it’s like a double bonus. Mahalo nui loa for being interested and loving up my project Hawaiian Airlines Hana Hou team!!!

Menu for December 14 & 15

This fruit leather is 100% local and organic and wildcrafted, made with kahili ginger flowers (Hedychium gardnerianum) and bananas and strawberry guava (Psidium cattleianum). Along with our usual suspects of wild boar musubi, venison musubi, and haole koa tempeh, we had a delicious Oko’a Farms salad mix with haole koa miso (Leucaena leucocephala) dressing.
