A Lili‘uokalani Gardens volunteer work day on Friday, Aug. 26, will help get ready for the family fun day—He Hali‘a Aloha No Lili‘uoklani—in September.

Many hands are needed from 8 a.m. until noon for the “Gratitude for the Garden” volunteer day with an emphasis on preparing for the annual queen’s birthday festival.

Areas of concentration will be the main entry (blow, rake, sweep, bag debris); lava outcroppings along entry sidewalk (burn grass clippings off, edge, trim nearby bushes, pull weeds); stage, VIP tent, and children’s activities tent (rake lawn, clean lava outcropping, edge especially around the plaque, trim trees and hibiscus).

Depending on the number of volunteers, there may be a pond chore or the red bridge area may be cleaned of ironwood needles or the tea house gravel could be swept or any number of other projects could be tackled.

All workers will be provided refreshments and lunch. Volunteers should wear gardening clothes and closed-toe shoes for safety.


For further details, contact K.T. Cannon-Eger at (808) 895-8130.
