Taro: Past to Present

Kalo, also known as taro, is one of the oldest known crops, originating in the western hemisphere and grown sustainably by Native Americans for thousands of years. Now spread globally, squash is a sustainable favorite, fitting well into the Pacific agroforestry model and introduced to Hawaiʻi during the plantation days. 

From the three sisters to Pacific agroforestry, Kalo has always played an important role in sustainable food systems.
