Seed Bomb Workshop

October 17th, 5:30 PM – 7 PM @ Kaka’ako Ocean Friendly Garden, 210 Coral St. Honolulu, HI. 96813

Join us for the EcoRotary Club’s monthly club development meeting, where we focus on meeting the needs of all our club members and ensuring that everyone has the tools to be active and effective members of the community! 

We are hosting a seed bomb making workshop at the Kaka’ako Ocean Friendly Garden. Seed bombs are an excellent and fun way to spread native plants by packing a bunch of native seeds into something you can throw to cover a wide area. This is a popular ecosystem restoration method. Last year, we volunteered with the Ko’olau Mountain Watershed Project and threw some prepared seed bombs. This time, we’re going to be learning how to make the seed bombs ourselves and then we’ll be planning a follow-up event with KMWP to throw them in a target area that they identify.

This will be at the Kaka’ako Ocean Friendly Garden, NOT at the RevoluSun Office. Please arrive at 5:30 if possible, as we want to make sure we have plenty of sunlight to make the seed bombs. Gloves will be available upon request, but you can bring your own or just get your hands dirty!

Each month we’ll focus on a different aspect of club development, so all members will be updated with what the plan is for each meeting and how they can prepare.

Zoom will not be available for this workshop.

Pineapple Carving Contest

October 21st, 7 AM – 12 PM @ Kaka’ako Farmer’s Market, 919 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, HI. 96814

It’s time for our annual Pineapple Carving Contest! This is EcoRotary’s Annual Fundraiser where participants carve their scariest, funniest, or weirdest faces into a pineapple and share it with our club and on social media. Each entry costs $15 and all funds raised will be donated to the Rotary International Polio Plus Foundation.

Worldwide, Polio has been nearly eradicated, but there are still a few regions that suffer from Polio. The Polio Plus Fund helps fund 91% of worldwide Polio vaccination efforts, as well as provide regional health support in other matters such as nutritional assistance, hygiene, and disease prevention. Our goal as a club is to raise $500 for the Polio Plus Foundation this year.

Entries will be accepted throughout the month of October, and we will be at the Kaka’ako Farmer’s Market on October 21st for an in-person event to allow people to carve pineapples as a group or as part of their farmer’s market experience. You can enter at any point throughout the month of October by carving your pineapple at home, tagging us on Instagram @ecorotary and making your donations at this link paypal.me/rotarykakaako

Pearl Harbor Bike Path Cleanup

October 28th, 8 AM – 10:30 AM @ Meeting Spot at Lehua Elementary, 791 Lehua Ave. Pearl City, HI. 96782

Register at bit.ly/PearlHarbor-10-23

Join our collaborative cleanup along the 5 mile Pearl Harbor Bike Path and beyond. The City & County of Honolulu, Navy & Military Personnel, several Rotary Clubs, numerous nonprofits and caring businesses join forces twice a year to help keep the path clean and cleared for our community. This is one of the largest cleanups island wide with anywhere from 5-12 tons of burnable trash, car removals when possible, homeless aid to the surrounding community prior to the cleanups, HPD safety/support before and during our cleanups and beautification/restoration. The efforts are needed, much of this trash sits along the Pearl Harbor waterfront and ends up in the ocean. The more activation and restoration we can create on this path the cleaner and safer it will be for our community. It’s a beautiful community path that runs along the Pearl Harbor Bay and is the longest stretch of a bike path made for pedestrians and bicycles off the streets. It also runs along the rail line and will be a great aid for those choosing to bike to the rail from their homes. It’s also projected to connect to Kapolei and on to Nanakuli! Last but not least, this path runs along the historic Pearl Harbor and all it’s landmarks, in addition to the local streams, natural freshwater springs, Ahupua’a’s and home to native plants and animals.

The city will also have a waiver the day of to sign as well, if there are any minors planning on joining us (12-17 yrs old preferred), they do need to have their parent/guardians fill out the waiver ahead of time. We will send the city’s waiver to registrants but everyone can sign it upon arrival if they wish and the parent/guardian is present.

Each group will have their designated cleanup spots. The Eco Rotary Club of Kaka’ako will be meeting at the Lehua Avenue access to the Bike Path. Here is the google maps location you can use, click: https://goo.gl/maps/WK7pv9JM9dJkoscr7 . This will take you to the parking area, there will be street parking, and parking lot to park in. FYI, the other Rotary Clubs will have other locations.
