Most of you know, I had the pleasure of being a part of the Koa Reforestation project in the Keauhou forest. It was where we all became one with the forest. As cliche' as it may sound, this was how it was. We were able to escape the busy schedules of work, family, and the city and take in and appreciate what our environment has to offer. Being one with the `aina allowed us all to reflect on what we want and strive for in our lives. Being in 30,000 acres of land with nothing else around you, really put things into a different perspective. Part of this project allowed us to work together and plant Koa seedlings. We did this with the hopes for a better future. We may not see these trees when they are fully grown, but we know we're all working towards sustaining a better future for our children and grand children. If you haven't done so already, take some time to sign up with Patty Ikeda for the next planting.
