GROW O'ahu

Island Style Gardening and Plant-Based Living




My Hawaii backyard version of the Three Sisters planting method. Long beans on the wall, dark green zucchini under the organic sweet corn. Right behind the chicken coop. Who says you need farm? 😉

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.

    • It was a gift of Martha Stewart organic sweet corn seeds- my Small Boy planted them! And I really didn’t expect them to grow, as they are not a variety that would usually grow here! 🙂

  1. I’m experimenting with corn for the first time this year – keeping my expectations low, but it sure is gutting tall out there. 🙂
