Gardening, biology, and Hawaiian culture come together at the Seventh Annual Grow Hawaiian Festival presented by Hawaii Forest and Trail at the Amy Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26.

Hawaiian cultural practitioners, biologists, conservationists, and horticulturists celebrate their shared passion for the plants and insects of Hawaii at this annual festival.

The event is free and everybody is invited.

There are presentations on botanical gardens, native ferns, storytelling sessions, and demonstrations of ipu gourd decorating, kapa making, lauhala weaving, woodworking, lei making, taro cultivation, and Hawaiian dyes.

There will be hands-on activities for the keiki (children) and adults, plant and insect identification booths, displays, live entertainment, Hawaiian food, and much more.

The Seventh Annual Grow Hawaiian Festival is supported in part by a grant from the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), in partnership with the County of Hawaii through the County Product Enrichment Program (CPEP).
