How may I help?

The lifeblood of any successful non-profit community organization is volunteer participation.

With Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens in Hilo Hawai`i, we are blessed with supportive residents who feel a kinship to the County park as well as interested visitors, some of whom desire a deeper connection to places they visit.

PondCleaning

Volunteers help clear the pond edge of overgrown sod and decades of muck

In a big garden with maintenance and capital improvements as well as centennial events, there’s always something to do.

Some chores involve getting down and dirty, sweating up a storm, and exercising every muscle in your body.

Other activities require more artistic skill.

Some activities, such as installing a display at a public library or sitting an information table, are slightly more sedate.

No matter what your skill or energy level, Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens can use your help.

Coming up soon are the annual koi nobori event (April 30 through May 5 putting up and taking down fish windsocks on bamboo poles); the annual Hilo Lei Day Festival at Kalakaua Park (Wednesday May 1, information table); the annual AIDS Walk (Saturday May 4, information table); and the annual Hilo Huli sponsored by Rotary Club of South Hilo (Sunday May 5, information table). If you are able to help with any of these events, contact K.T. Cannon-Eger by email at kteger@hawaii.rr.com

In June, the annual Obon in the Gardens (Saturday June 1) could use set up and craft help. Contact chairman Jane Heit by email at bonqueen@gmail.com
