HOK is extremely proud to offer the, Hawaiʻi Residential Rain Garden Manual to residents of Hawaiʻi. The Manual provides homeowners the information they need to successfully build a rain garden to capture and infiltrate storm water from their property. Rain gardens are a low-cost and effective way for homeowners to proactively participate in ocean protection. You can download a copy of the Manual here or contact HOK to purchase a hard copy for $20. There are still spaces available for Ko'olaupoko residents interested in participating in HOK's Rain Garden Co-op program. This program will cover the cost for rain garden materials at your home with you and volunteers constructing the rain garden.
Keep an eye on future newsletters and our Facebook page for upcoming volunteer opportunities to participate in our "Rain Garden Parties" and learn how to construct a rain garden on your own property.
If your group would like a presentation or a rain garden training/workshop, please e-mail HOK's Executive Director, Todd Cullison.
The mission of Hui o Ko`olaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the `aina: mauka to makai. This is done in partnership with stakeholders including interested citizens, non-governmental organizations, government, educational institutions and businesses while using and focusing on sound ecological principles, community input, and cultural heritage.
