In the spirit of Fall, Tūtū and Me “Team Waipa” of O‘ahu visited Aloun Farms with their Papakōlea and Wai‘anae sites in October.
Keiki and caregivers were entertained with a short cartoon presentation from “Broc the Broccoli” who explained the importance of local farming in the State of Hawai‘i. Following the presentation, everyone boarded the Aloun Farm’s hayride which took us on a tour of Aloun’s pumpkin patches, sunflower and corn fields.
At the completion of our adventurous hayride, we all made our way to the pumpkin patches where each keiki could pick a pumpkin to take home. No one left empty-handed and the keiki had fun hand picking their own pumpkins. It was an enjoyable time outside of the classroom and we always look forward to the coming months huaka‘i.
