Stepping off the beaten path, and the hustle and bustle of the crowds at the Shopping Malls, we found a quite quaint place to not only learn a little bit of Hawaii’s history.  But to our surprise,  we found some handcrafted goods in the tradition of Old Hawaii inside the makeshift gift shop of the Hawaii Plantation Welcome office.

While for over a century Sugar Cane was “King” in the Hawaiian Islands, the growing of Taro (Below) by the Hawaiian’s has remained a staple of tradition and part of the rich culture of  the Hawaiian people, agriculture and the caring for the lands.
