Hi‘iaka’s Healing Herb Garden
and for you too!
We are dedicated to conserving and educating about endangered Hawaiian medicinal plants from the la‘au lapa‘au tradition of natural healing. Join us as a Friend of the Garden and help to support the important work we are doing.
We are only 16 miles south of the Hilo airport and a short 1/2 mile walk to the beautiful Puna coastline (we can often hear the ocean from the Garden!). Click for map
On the Big Island of Hawai‘i, the volcano goddess Pele is still worshipped and feared. Pele’s beloved younger sister, Hi‘iaka, was a gardener, an herbalist and a healer. It is in Hi`iaka’s honor that we have re-created a special healing garden. It’s a sacred space that enables us to teach about Hi‘iaka and the hundreds of medicinal plants that we nurture, learn from and share with others who also love the ‘aina (land).
Meet the Healthful Herbalist: Join your teacher and guide Barbara Fahs–educator, Master Gardener, herbalist, and author–for an unforgettable visit to her special Hawaiian garden.
