Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook on the Island of Hawai‘i has three volunteer gardening days coming up: January 11, January 25, and February 8. The volunteer gardening days start at 9:30 and last until 12 noon. The volunteer gardening days are an opportunity to meet new people, learn about native plants, and hone gardening skills.

Participants can bring a lunch and stay for the Guided Hawaiian Plant Walk at 1 p.m. (general admission for the walk will be waived for volunteers). The Hawaiian Plant Walk is funded by an award from the County of Hawai‘i Department of Research and Development and the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority.

Volunteers should bring gloves, hat, sunscreen, mosquito lotion, and their favorite hand tools. For more information, please call (808) 323-3318.

Amy Greenwell Garden is Bishop Museum’s native plant arboretum in Captain Cook on the Island of Hawai‘i. The Garden is open 9-4 every day except Mondays and holidays. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or a modification of policies and procedures to participate in the Hawaiian Plant Walks should contact Peter Van Dyke at 808-323-3318 at least two weeks before their planned visit.
