If you love plants and the story of plants, this is a spectacular treat. Acre by acre, volunteers are restoring native plants and preserving endangered plant species. An ancient terraced garden has been restored, providing a fascinating glimpse into ancient Hawaiians water conservation techniques.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was given by one of the famous locals, Freddy, who used to own a pizza shop in Hanalei. He is so knowledgeable. A must see.
