A few weekends ago, 40 of our Foodland employees spent some time planting banana trees and picking weeds at Ma‘o Organic Farms in Wai‘anae. It was an amazing experience and we were able to take home some of the fruits and vegetables of our labor. Fresh off the farm and certified organic, everything tasted unbelievably delicious!
