    Wild Amaranth

    Spiny amaranth (Amaranthus spinosus) is a global invader of tropical and sub-tropical areas, and is extending its reach into temperate climates due to climate change and increased disturbances of native habitats. Teaching us to give our thorny plants some space so they can mend depleted soils, this invasive species provides a plentiful supply of nutritious greens and medicinal uses. Put the 'One Wild Food Every Day' sticker somewhere prominent in your life, and then follow its advice!

    Wild Ginger

    Kahili ginger (Hedychium gardnerianum) is in the top 100 most invasive species on the planet. Responsible for directly threatening endangered species in our high elevation forests, this aromatic and medicinal plant is in the top 100 most invasive on the planet. We also use two other Hedychium spp. which clog up waterways from mauka to makai. If we want the streams to flow again, we must clear the way of this invasive species. Your donation equips you with creative ideas on incorporating wild ginger into your diet, your medicine chest, and the information you need to make sure it doesn't spread further.

    Banana Poka

    Your generous donation gives this project some traction. You'll receive a one-of-a-kind tank top or shawl made from eucalyptus fabric (invasive in Hawai'i), dyed with African tulip flowers (invasive in Hawai'i) and eucalyptus leaves, and treated with a blend of aloe vera/honey/medicinalplants. Your custom medicinal clothing also comes with African tulip flower essence, which helps assist in releasing fear and lack of peace. The invasive passionflower Banana Poka (Passiflora tarminiana) smothers out endemic and native species in upper elevation forests. With beautiful pink flowers and delicious long fruits, picking these and disposing of the seeds properly, helps to ensure that Hawaii's unique flora and fauna, found nowhere else on earth, will continue their living legacy.
