Support Local Organic, Traditional, Hawaiian Agriculture!
We love Anthony! His primary piece of equipment needs to be replaced so he can effectively maintain his kalo farm, Ka'onohi Poi.
Let his prayers be answered and BIRTHDAY WISH COME TRUE with a brand, spankin' new Stihl FS 250 Weedwacker.
"Its very powerful. .. we have many heavy persistent weeds including cane grass... n many sedges that need a powerful tool... this is one of the best certainly powerful weedeater on the market... this weedwacker is built tough n built to last so I won't run into this problem again."
Anthony's background... "I'm a 33 year old organic farmer.... we grow kalo , uala, rare Hawaiian bananas, non gmo heirloom corns and various heirloom veggies. I do many communities events for no charge through out the year including cultural practices such as poi pounding demos, loi building workshops, and kalo identification. I also work closely with Uncle Jerry Konanui across the islands to help identify kalo varieties in the collections across the state. My next event will be the kalo workshop in Waimea."
Anthony is a member of Onipaa Na Hui Kalo, an organization of farmers who help to restore traditional and new loi. They travel off island, if need be, to help open new loi.
