When we got to the boar harbor, we introduced ourselves and our favorite plants. My favorite plant is kiawe because it smells good when it’s burnt and it’s good firewood to cook food. We shoveled mulch and put it on the new plants being grown there so they can retain water and don’t dry up. We also waxed the hau wood for the canoe so they would look nice. Mr. Kaina talked about how people were trying to kick out everyone living there, but they are working to make this place into a safe community to live in, like a little utopia. He also spoke about the history of the E Ala canoe. I think what they’re doing there is pretty good because it gives people a second chance at being sustainable in their own society. My highlight for the day was seeing my brother Tito who I haven’t seen for a long time.
