A glimpse back at our 2015 & 2018 Challenge & Farm Fest

Our 2018 Waianae Eat Local Challenge (Every Saturday from Oct. 6 – Oct. 27) began with our very first Keiki Farm Fest on Oct. 6, with a mini petting zoo for families to enjoy. The Challenge ended on Oct. 27 with an Eggplant Finale, with delicious food demos focused on the nutritional values of eggplant.
