Hawaii’s only statewide collaborative health and green festival made its way to the Big Island this weekend.
Many interested residents visited the Amy Greenwell Ethno-Botanical Garden in Captain Cook to learn about organic, cultural cooking and the use of medicinal herbs. Demonstrations, music, healthy food, artists and networking were all a part of the two day event.
Remedies for VOG, taro talk, Amazon jungle medicine, and healthy salad dressings were the varied subject matter of special presentations seen through out the day.
A tree giveaway and plant sale also took place on Saturday.
Originating on Kauai and organized by the online Hawaii Health Guide, the festival now takes place across the state of Hawaii, with stops on many islands.
