Molokai Taro Field Day Going Virtual

UH CTAHR Molokai Extension News Release

Despite the pandemic and all its restrictions to keep us safe, the annual Molokai Taro Field Day will take place, just in a virtual way. The virtual Taro Field Day will be held on Thursday, April 15 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Registration is now open online at eventbrite.com/e/molokai-virtual-taro-field-day-tickets-149113571707. Once registered, you will receive a link to the event.

This year’s event will include mo’olelo, along with spotlighting of several taro varieties. There will be an update on the Lunar Response in Kalo Project, and for those for who have questions about what’s happening at the UHMC/UH Applied Research and Demonstration Farm, we will provide an update on that as well.

To carry on the traditions, we will be offering huli again this year with preference given to Molokai residents and educational institutions. Huli are only available through the Huli Request Form which will be available online starting April 12-20 via our Molokai Taro Email List. For more details or to be added to the Molokai Taro Email List and to receive the Huli Request Form Link, please email jhawk@hawaii.edu with your name, email address, and a phone number to reach you. The deadline to request huli is April 20 at 4 p.m. Huli pick up details will be provided to all who submit a request.

Lastly, the Kalo Cooking Contest is back thanks to our partners at UH Maui College. The contest details will be announced during the Virtual Taro Field Day.

As always, this event is open to everyone without regard to race, age, sex, color, or disability. Educational activities are accessible for individuals with disabilities. For more information or to request an auxiliary aid or service (e.g., sign language, interpreter, or material in alternative format), contact Jennifer at the Molokai Extension Office at (808) 567-6934 or via email at by Wednesday noon before the activity/event.
