Foods from Koa Haole with Sunny Savage & GoFarm Hawaiʻi

June 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Maui Nui Botanical Gardens

Koa haole (Leucaena leucocephala) is a widespread and invasive plant in Hawai‘i that will likely not be eliminated any time soon. Learn from Sunny Savage, an accomplished forager and creator of the Savage Kitchen App, about identifying, harvesting, processing, and eating this invasive species. Sunny will cover how to make koa haole capers as an introduction to her research into the utility of one of Hawai‘i’s most weedy plants. Participants will receive a copy of the author’s 54 page monograph on koa haole
