Day 10 – 14 with Dougherty: More Sticks!

If you watched the video on this blog post, you’ll note some cheering & laughter as we prematurely celebrated the abundant harvest of materials we gathered over the course of 3-days expected to complete Dougherty's gigantic work of public art.

Well, if you haven’t guessed by now- we needed more!

We have been so fortunate to have such devoted, inspired, energetic volunteers working with us on this project; hundreds of community members have been stepping up to the plate, tools in hand, ready and willing to snip, cut, truck, weave, rake, and just pitch in in any way they can throughout the duration of this sculpture installation. A special mahalo to the State Department of Land & Natural Resources for facilitating the permit process (again & again) and for offering so many helping hands over the course of the last week as we collected additional white ash in Makawao Forest Reserve and strawberry guava in Huelo.

We’re nearly finished!

Mahalo to the latest crew members, many of which have put in multiple days of volunteerism!
