Ice Cream Social and Plant Exchange/Sale at Moani-Lundkvist Garden

  • Sunday, September 10, 2023
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Leilani Estates, corner of Malama and Kumakahi


Registration is closed

Grab some ice cream and hang out with your HIPS friends in the incredible Moani-Lundkivist Garden.  Bob Carrere and Andy Pesce welcome us back to their garden for an afternoon of plant bartering or selling.  

HIPS will provide drinks and ice cream, served in the garden pavilion.  Enjoy wandering past hundreds of palm species in one of the most famous private palm gardens in the world. If you missed the previous garden tours, be sure to see it this time.

We can’t have a plant sale without plant sellers!

All HIPS members are invited to sell or trade plants at this meeting. This is not a fundraiser for HIPS. There is no cost to set up ~10X10 area of plants you want to pass along to new homes. Seller keeps all money from the sale. Of course, we are looking mostly for palms, but all plants are welcome. Use this opportunity to clear out some those extra babies in your shade house and convert them into cash. The event begins at 1:00, so vendors should set up between 12:30 and 1:00 on Kumakahi next to the property. This is a dead end that will be blocked off to regular traffic and parking. Bring a pop-up canopy if you are worried about rain. Your sales area will be immediately next to your vehicle, so setup should be quick and easy. Please test all plants for fire ants and treat as needed.  We should have plenty of space, but please email Rick Kelley <> no later than Friday, September 8 if you plan on selling so we know how many vehicles to expect. 

Please be considerate of the neighbors. Carpooling is appreciated, parking will be along the streets.
