A Trip to the Big Island

We took a hop over to the Big Island last week to visit with our protea farmers, meander around Volcano National Park, and eat amazing things in Hilo. Oahu is not a bad place to live,  but the expansiveness and lushness of the Big Island reminded us of a different Hawaii- one free of traffic and the constant humm of construction noise. Big Island we'll be back soon!

Photographer Mariko Reed was along on this trip to gather images for our upcoming book project- stay tuned for that one :)
