The theme of the spring issue and one of our favorite subjects, GROW. To see things grow, emerge, mature and to experience all phases of growth is satisfying.

Our cover is a spring salad created by chef Noah Hester of The Blue Dragon Restaurant on Hawai’i Island. We asked chef Noah to create a 100% locally sourced salad course for an edible Event – a dinner to support post-production expenses for the full-length documentary, I Am Haloa. To take it a step further chef Noah worked with his father, Ron Hester to turn a fallen mango tree on the farm into serving bowls for the salad.  The cover photograph reminds us of spring, new growth and that all things are possible.

A special mahalo to the photographer, Anna Pacheco.
