If you’re a fan of all things poi … head on down to the 3rd Annual Kalo Festival this weekend!

Organizers invite the community to learn more about the cultural and historical significance of this staple crop.  Daniel Anthony is a local Kalo famer who believes it’s important to continue farming traditional crops such as taro. He’ll be at the festival this weekend leading a community taro-pounding workshop.
