Harvest Day at Harc


Hawaii Agriculture Research Center

The Seeds4Tomorrow garden has an abundance of produce growing and our  Olena (Turmeric)  and Kalo (Taro) are  ready for harvest! Join us for our harvest days to learn about growing,  harvesting, and cooking/using  these crops. The Olena will be sold after harvest with  all proceeds supporting  the Seeds4Tomorrow education program.

Participants will assist with removing crops from the ground, followed by washing, cleaning and weighing. Please wear covered shoes, long pants and bring a reusable water bottle.  Long sleeves are optional. A hat is highly recommended.  Be prepared to get dirty and wet. Gloves and tools will be provided.

We will finish our morning with snacks from the garden!

We plan to hold a monthly  harvest day during Feb-May. Dates will be posted.

Harvest Day Hours: Saturday 8:30-11:30.

Hawaii Agriculture Research Center


About the organizer

Founded in 1895, the Hawaiian Sugar Planters’ Association (HSPA), dedicated to improving the sugar industry in Hawaii, has become an internationally recognized research center.
It was in 1996 when HSPA expanded its research interest besides sugarcane and acquired its current name Hawaii Agriculture Research Center (HARC), expanding its research on tropical crops and forests. Standing now as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, HARC’s research and education interest encompasses forestry, coffee, cacao, forages, vegetable crops, tropical fruits, and other diversified crops.

Our mission is to support a viable agricultural sector by researching and applying relevant science and technology to achieve practical solutions and identify new agricultural opportunities.

Harcʻs education division, Seeds4Tomorrow,  was launched in 2014
