Have you noticed an uptick in gardening since the coronavirus pandemic started? We sure did! Mahalo to everyone who sent in photos of their ocean-friendly victory gardens! Well we’re not done...we’re now encouraging Maui residents to catch their friends and neighbors in the act of gardening - the ocean friendly way! What exactly does it mean to be “ocean friendly?” It has to do with what you put in your garden (such as fertilizers and pesticides, and the plants themselves), and how you water it (the tech you use and the timing). Check out our list of “Ocean-Preferred Products” for starters, and also see our tips on fertilizing, dealing with pests, and watering your garden.
Here’s how to participate: get out there are “bust” your friends and neighbors being ocean friendly with their gardens by snapping a photo (*safely socially-distanced of course), send us the photo (*with their permission of course), and if you can, post it on your own social media as well using #OceanFriendlyMaui. Include your mailing address when you email us so we can send you a gift card (if you’re a Maui resident). We’ll share it on our pages and website to highlight the positive action people are taking.
