I recently came across this video from 5 years ago that I never uploaded and shared. Surprise! So glad I found Part 2 of a hike with Mashuri Waite, which highlights wild food plants and Hawaiian native plants found on the Manoa Cliff Trail, Oahu. This trail is getting regular love from a group of dedicated volunteers at the Manoa Cliff Native Forest Restoration Project.
Get a glimpse at Hawaii’s natives: koa (Acacia koa), kupukupu fern (Nephrolepis exaltata), olona (Touchardia latifolia), and ohia ha (Syzygium sandwicensis). And these non-native edibles: oriental hawksbeard (Youngia japonica) and shin san cho (Erechtites valerianifolia).
