Dry Box Workshop

“E ʻai i kekāhi, e kāpī kekāhi.”  ~  Eat some, salt some.  Said to young people: Eat some now and save some for another time.

Ōlelo No’eau #252, Mary Kawena Puku’i

We are honored to bring Eric Enos and his staff from Kaʻala Farm of Waiʻanae all the way over to Koʻolaupoko in order to share their ʻike regarding making dry boxes. As the above ʻōlelo noʻeau states, its important to learn the value of storing and saving some food (and other resources) for another day when such resources arenʻt as available. So in that mode, we invite any and all to learn how to make your very own dry box. It can be used to dry fish, heʻe, fruit, or anything you have the patience for.

The workshop will be held on Saturday February 22nd from 8:30am to 4pm. This workshop is a part of our ongoing hands-on workshop series through our Maliʻu a Liʻu Project which is funded by OHA. We host hands-on workshops like this every 2 months as well as occasional evening lectures.

The registration fee is $40 and each participant will receive instructions on how to build your own dry box, a tshirt, lunch, and your very own dry box. The materials for the dry box are included in the fee, so no need bring your own wood and screen! Space is limited to the first 20 registrants who are 16 years or older.
