On Tuesday, Aug. 30, the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset invites the public to a talk by Sunny Savage, author of “Wild Food Plants of Hawaii.” She will share her extensive knowledge about the kiawe tree. Savage has been foraging for over 20 years. With multiple degrees in nutrition, she has woven together academia and experience to provide a unique voice for biodiversity in our food systems. Extensive global travel and an appetite for creative endeavors have led her to participate in cutting-edge discussions about the future of food and culture.
