Karolyn Lundkvist Malama Garden 
                Leilani Estates
Malama garden is one of the premier palm gardens on Hawaii Island. Situated on 5 acres in Leilani Estates, the rainforest environment creates the perfect setting for tropical and subtropical palms. 

There are over 135 genera, 600 species, and almost 5000 individual palms on the property, most planted by world geographical areas. Come and wander winding paths through palms of Madagascar, New Caledonia, Polynesia, South America, Sumatra, and Borneo.  

In addition to the palms, there are hundreds of cycads, orchids, anthurium, and bomeliads complimented by varied topography and accented with covered wood bridges, rock walls, paved walks, and natural trails.    

This will also be a Society 'potluck' and HIPS will be providing the entree. We are asking those who plan to attend bring a side dish to share. More information and directions will be forthcoming in a subsequent email prior to the event. Free to members and their guests, $10 charge for non-members.
 Anderson Garden 
The Anderson garden is another legendary Hawaii palm garden located in Leilani Estates. This mature garden features many rare species of palms, airoids, orchids, and bromeliads. 
HIPS' last visit to this multi acre garden was back in the fall of 2012. 

HIPS will also be hosting a Potluck and 'Ice Cream Social' at this event with the society providing the ice cream. 
More info will be sent via email prior to this event.
