A message from our Kona origin farmers…

“Here’s the view from the lanai at BrocksenGate Estate.  We can relax ending a successful coffee season and before beginning a new one.  The trees in the foreground are 30 years old Royal Palms that line our driveway and let us peek through them at Kealakekua Bay to the northwest.”

King Kamehameha ruled the Hawaiian Islands until 1819.  He defended traditional Hawaiian values, stopped the kapu system and ended human sacrifice.  In 1795 he secured the islands of Maui, Moloka’i and Oahu after earlier controlling Kohala, Kona, and Hamakau.  In 1878 a statute of Kamehameha was cast in Paris.  During its sail to Hawaii, the ship and its cargo were lost at sea.  A second statute was cast, but the original was found and today it stands in west Hawaii in Kapa’au.  The copy resides in Honolulu.

Barrio Logan gets its very own community garden this month!

The proposed Barrio Logan community garden might go beneath the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, just east of the Mercado del Barrio project, seen here under construction in 2012.

The San Diego Architectural Foundation granted $25,000 to build a community garden in the heart of beautiful Barrio Logan.  The official celebration of the award will be May 4th fom 11:00am-2:00pm at the mercado project at Cesar Chavez Pkwy and National Avenue.  The plot will allow 10-15 lucky food growing families to enjoy the outdoors and eat from their local land. Just another hip thing going on in Barrio Logan!
