Only 40 days until our third anti-meth mural tour begins. We’ll be painting 4 murals on 4 islands at 4 high schools and we’re so excited! One way to prepare for the physical challenges of this tour is by staying health conscious. Yesterday we cross-trained: walking 5 miles followed by ocean swimming then weightlifting. We’ve also started eating probiotic foods and we definitely feel the difference! We were inspired to learn more about fermented foods after watching a documentary that premiered online, Origins. So far, we’ve made kimchi, sauerkraut and pickled cucumbers. It’s a process, but so rewarding! It’s also quite affordable! We want to keep learning about fermenting foods so if you have any info to share, please do!
Molokai High School has invited us to re-create a very special campus beautification project titled Mauka to Makai (Mountain to Ocean). This project is in its 1st stage of production starting with 4 ocean-based murals on Building A and the Gym. The murals are reminiscent in theme to the former murals which were illustrated by Mr. Howard Celnik which told an amazing story of if how Molokai residence are all Farmers and Fisherman. Here is a sneek peek into beginning stages of our progress. Mahalo Mrs. Lisa Takata and Principal Stan Ha’o. Stay Tuned
