5th Hana Limu Festival: Nov. 8 and 9

Posted on November 1, 2013 at 12:00 AM by Office of Council Services


 

I encourage the public to attend the 5th Hana Limu Festival on Nov. 8 and 9., at Helene Hall and Kapueokahi, Hana Bay Beach Park.

This event promotes awareness of the propagation and conservation of limu (seaweed). Limu serves an important role in the health of our ecosystem.

The event encourages ways to increase limu yield. The native limu is not only nutritious, but is also an important part of the traditional Hawaiian diet and culture. 

I encourage everyone to spend a beautiful weekend in Hana and take part in this exciting annual event. There will be food, music and entertainment, a silent auction, and fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.

This event is sponsored by non-profit organization Na Mamo O Mu‘olea and its partners, the County of Maui, NOAA and the Nature Conservancy.
