Wow, time flies! It's once again almost time for the monthly plant exchange at Kaiser High School. Bring a plant, take a plant, or if something catches your fancy and you don't have an exchange, just leave a donation. Net proceeds go 100% to Friends of Kaiser PTSA, where they use it for teacher supplies, award donations and other academic endeavors.
This month, we'll be bringing our revolving stock of plants and adding pandan plants, which have finally matured enough to give away. Pandan is a great culinary plant, used extensively in Malaysian, Indonesian, Filipino and Singaporean cooking. I mostly use it to flavor rice, adding a few leaves before steaming. If you're feeling fancy, you can make a nice pot of Nasi Lemak with little ado.
We also have a number of green ti leaf remaining, as well as kupukupu fern and true oregano.
Kaiser High School Parking Lot, 511 Lunalilo Home Road from 4-7pm on October 4. Hope to see you there.
