Come to a breakfast gathering on Thursday, May 23 and hear from Joel Tanabe, chairman of Hawai‘i Community College's Construction Technology Department and an expert on the college's "Model Home Project."
The Model Home Project, a collaboration between the Department of Hawaiian Homelands and Hawai‘i Community College, has been providing students with valuable hands-on experience in the building trades since 1965. Students recently have been putting the finishing touches on the 46th home, and on May 9th the house will be presented to the lucky family during a ceremony.
It's not easy to pull off the project year after year - Tanabe once said it's like "driving a Ferrari at 175 mph" - but it's worth it for the experience it gives the students. Come learn how it's done and how students and the Big Island business community benefit.
The event includes a continental breakfast at 7:30am in Hawai‘i Community College, Building 382 (cafeteria). Cost is $10 per person; RSVP by Sunday, May 19 to Fred Yamashiro: firstname.lastname@example.org or 935-3721 ext. 510.

Growing Durian in Hawai‘i is very feasible in certain areas. The enjoy a high humidity content of around 75-80% with an ideal rainfall being between 1,600 and 4,000 ml a year. The preferred temperature ranges from 24 to 30 degrees Celsius. A loamy sand soil provides the right amount of drainage to hold just enough water while avoiding root rot. Another way to keep durians satisfied with the humidity content is by planting banana trees in between each durian tree since they aid in holding moisture in the air. Growing your own durian can prove to be useful if you are one of those who truly believes the sayings “Tastes like heaven but smells like hell” and “Don’t judge a book by its cover or a durian by its smell.”
