Foster Garden is an oasis of peace and serenity in bustling downtown Honolulu. Did you know there’s a butterfly garden? An edible garden that features double coconut, cacao and `ulu trees? Slow Food O`ahu has arranged a private tour for its members with focus on these aspects of the garden. Our very own docent and a SFO member, who is also a Foster Garden volunteer, will share her vast knowledge with us of this gem.
Sunday, April 6, from 9:30am to about 11:30am. This is a free event and preference will be given to Slow Food O`ahu members. Tour participants will have to purchase individual $3.00 admission tickets to Foster Garden. Umbrellas and mosquito repellant are advised.
Incidentally, at 3pm on April 6th, Foster Garden has scheduled a repeat of “The Beginning of a Garden” a historical performance that winds its way throughout the entire garden. Make reservations for this event at 522-7066. Admission to the garden is $3.

As a chapter of Slow Food USA, we support national and international efforts on behalf of sustainable agriculture and rediscovery of the pleasures of the table.
Slow Food USA seeks to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system. We reconnect Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. We inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.
