Just in time for Memorial Day, graduation season and any occasion that you may need a lei, participants will be taught how to make a ti-leaf lei. Ti-leaf plants survive well in our natural climate conditions. Its shiny and waxy leaves don’t require a lot of watering, which helps to minimize outdoor water use. Participants are invited to donate ti-leaf lei that will be placed on a gravesite at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl for Memorial Day.
