The CLC recently held a construction job site tour at the 'A'ali'i project in Ward Village. Members got to hear about the process, challenges, and successes from a few of the project leaders before touring several areas of the almost complete project. After the tour, a pau hana networking event was held at Lokahi Brewery.

COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
Community Service Projects
One of the goals of the CLC is to reach out and do various community service projects. The first of these was a Lo'i cleanup event! The severe rains several months back in 2021 deeply damaged the North Shore of O'ahu. This project was aimed to help the farms re-establish streams and dams, as well as dig out buried kalo. The two farms supported were Homestead Poi Hanale Bishop Y& Sticky Famrs Lo'i.
Stay tuned for future community service project events!
