After a one-year hiatus, Lā ‘Ulu (Breadfruit Day) is returning in 2021 thanks to an ‘Ahahui Grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA).

The event will be held on Saturday, September 4 at MNBG (150 Kanaloa Ave., Kahului) with presentations throughout the week leading up to the event. The purpose of the event is to provide outreach about the use of ‘ulu (breadfruit) to Maui residents and the Native Hawaiian community by showcasing the history of traditional Hawaiian ‘ulu cultivation, publicizing local businesses and nonprofits that promote ‘ulu cultivation and ‘ulu products, and exhibiting horticulture, harvesting, handling, storage, cooking demonstrations, and recipes using ‘ulu. The free event celebrates the harvest season for Hawaiian ‘ulu, kinolau (physical form) of Kū, as a symbol of a provider’s kuleana (responsibility) for caring for and feeding their family.

For more information on the event or to participate, follow @mauinuibg or contact MNBG
