Ali‘i Kula LavenderWe had a lovely day at Ali‘i Kula Lavender yesterday, at their first Sustainable Aloha Festival, dedicated to Ali‘i Chang, founder, farmer and visionary who passed on April 13, 2011.

Mahalo Nui Loa to all of our bakers:
Roxanne Tiffin
Shannon Wianecki
Aimee Singer
Elena Rego
Loren Clive
Daryl Fujiwara‘s friend whose Opala Cookies sold out!

Mahalo to Chris Speere for making the beautiful plaque in honor of Ali’i Chang. I never felt the time was right to present it on stage since the schedule ran like clock work, but I spoke privately to Pomai and a handful of her managers. That was perfect and heartfelt. Emotions were running high.

We raised almost $500.00 to donate to the Ali‘i Chang Foundation, so every moment baking paid off.

Roxanne’s daughter Lauren was also a big help and we send our special thanks to her as well.

We met several twitters IRL. Some came from Honolulu, Big Island and all over Maui. See our tweets ->

Thank you all!
