Celebrate Amy Greenwell’s Birthday Saturday

Greenwell, born in 1920, was an accomplished native plant expert and part of the well-established Greenwell family that settled in the Kona area in the mid-1800s. When Greenwell died in 1974, she left care of the garden to the Bishop Museum.
Admission will be free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Birthday cake and pupus will be served 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A guided walking tour of the garden’s native plants will start at 1.
