In March 2020, to decrease the potential of community spread of the virus and to protect employees, the Board of Water Supply (BWS) had cancelled or postponed BWS public events/activities and our participation in local events until further notice in effort to mitigate the possible spread of COVID-19 in the community.

This included the temporary closure of the Halawa Xeriscape Garden, as well as the cancellation of facility tours, workshops and ceremonies. As of Thursday, June 18, 2020, the Annual Open House and Unthirsty Plant Sale, traditionally held the first Saturday in August each year, has also been cancelled, BWS and the Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden (FOHXG) are looking at potential alternatives for this event later this year. More information will be provided as details become available.

Halawa Xeriscape Garden remains closed; no seed of the month or workshops are currently being offered.

Please email workshops@hbws.org or call (808) 748-5315 with questions.
