Friends of Kaiser High School PTSA runs a farmer's market every Tuesday from 4-7pm in the school parking lot.  It has piping hot food from Olay's Thai food and true farmer's stand run by Kay and filled with in-season fruits and vegetables. Recently, the market added a local rice producer who imports high-quality grain from Hokkaido and processes it here on Oahu less than 24 hours before sale.

In addition to the market's regular customers, I'd like to see more of you so we can get the momentum this market truly deserves.  On July 5, I'm bringing my plants to exchange them with you.  You bring yours, take one of mine or someone else's.  Don't have any plants to give?  Bring empty pots so they can be refilled for the next event.  Don't have those either?  Just take a plant and leave a voluntary donation to Kaiser's PTSA.  It's that easy.

To start with, I know I can provide:

I don't really have a green thumb, but I know these grow in Hawaii, and I know they grow well in my Hawaii Kai backyard.  In order, they are: Cholesterol spinach (edible), Creeping thyme (edible), Kupukupu fern (decorative), Mint (edible), Watermelon radish [seeds only] (edible) and Yomogi, aka mugwort (edible).

I'll probably have another half dozen or so different plants to offer, so come by and check out the booth.  If it goes well, we'll do it again the first Tuesday of the next month too.  Questions?  Email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
