Ali’i Chang, a Chinese-Hawaiian gardener and farmer bought a Protea farm in 1989 in Kula on the slopes of the dormant volcano Haleakala. In 2001 he planted the first lavender on his farm. That farm now boasts 55,000 lavender plants in 45 different varieties. You can go to the Ali’I Kula Lavender farm web site and buy lavender jelly, lavender soap, lavender seasoning and lavender dryer bags. During my visit I enjoyed a lavender scone with some lavender tea. Ali’I envisioned his farm not just as a place to produce lavender products but as a site for “Sustainable Aloha.” He passed away in 2011 and his son Koa has maintained both the farm and his father’s legacy.
