We had so much fun at Kokua Market’s 50th Anniversary celebration last year – we met and introduced many new people to our Zero Waste School and Worm Ohana programs and products…

This Sustainability Saturday, the Windward Zero Waste School Hui is back at Kokua Market with the Magic of Vermicast.

Give your garden, potted plants, landscaping and lawn a restorative late summer nutrient boost with fresh, microbially-active, locally produced worm castings. Participating schools daily turn garbage to gold with vermicomposting, and all proceeds from vermicast sales support school gardens and ag education.

Vermicast products on hand:

  • The ever-popular 5-pound container of freshly harvested worm castings for $20
  • New! A Special Blend Compost Tea Kit with everything you need to brew up several batches of fresh compost tea. Treat your plants with tea at your convenience. Regular price $20. Special Introductory Price available exclusively at the August 13th Kokua Market event – Only $10!

Pick up some vermicast and enjoy these other vendors as well:

  • Talk story with Genki Ala Wai representatives and learn about effective micro-organisms and how you can support the clean-up of the Ala Wai. The Genki Ala Wai Project is a non-profit project under the Hawaii Exemplary State Foundation. They aim to use bioremediation technology to make the Ala Wai Canal fishable and swimmable within seven years.
  • doTERRA Essential Oils – Feeling stressed? Get a free relaxing essential oil hand application with donation to Genki Ala Wai.
  • 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. enjoy Makana Provisions Cookout in the courtyard, as well as Kokua’s healthy and delicious plant-forward prepared food and farmers market produce sales inside the store. The Makana BBQ includes grass-fed local beef and “Hapa” burgers (half venison and half beef) and veggie burgers.
  • Live music by Jonathan Kema.

Sounds like fun, yah? We hope to see you there
