The Waimanalo Research Station hosted UH President/UH Manoa Chancellor David Lassner on July 28. He was greeted with chants by Malama Honua Charter School students, who use the site, and with a welcome from from Interim Dean Rachel Novotny and Malama Honua Executive Director Herb Lee. The tour included stops at GoFarm plots, demonstration screenhouses, the Station’s extensive taro collection, the corn-breeding project that is the source of so much delightful sweet corn (as well as much useful research), and aquaponics activities. The visit ended with a pau hana dinner under the tent and, certainly, gave Dr. Lassner lots of food for thought!
