Honolua Bay - West Maui
Honolua Bay - West Maui
|If you're exploring on the West side, pack up a sandwich and head to Honolua Bay for the most epic snorkeling. Just beyond Kapalua, this shoreline access has a rocky entrance (so water shoes come in handy) but is home to the clearest conditions for exploring the ocean. Why pay a tour guide to take you were you can go by yourself? On a good day, the surf break is heavier on the outside where locals frequent for a great ride. |

Hamoa Beach - A Gem on Maui's East Side
Hamoa Beach - East Maui
After experiencing a long ride on the windy road to Hana, you arrive at the most magnificent beach mother nature has ever created. With powder white sand and ample shade from the walnut trees, this is home plate for the world famous Hotel Travaasa Hana, Maui. Enough break to have a fun boogey ride or swim but not get hurt (on most days),
this beach is a definite show stopper when you find yourself on Maui's East side.

"The Farm to School Initiative" Encourages Action
I was excited to read about a new initiative taking place which urges local farmers to increase their efforts to sell to local schools. In a tropical location where agriculture tends to thrive, it just makes sense to feed our students with locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables. According to Pacific Business News, the new pilot program gives farmers until mid July to submit their interest.
"The Farm to School Initiative" has a goal to address the issues surrounding the purchasing of local food for school cafeterias while increasing state purchases of reasonably priced local food for school menus. Considering the State Department of Education has over 250 public schools and feeds about 100,000 students and employees each day, it seems The Department of Agriculture and the Department of Education have teamed up with the local community to blaze a trail that seems inevitable. Share this groundbreaking program with friends and neighbors as local farmers are encouraged to participate.
