Amy BH Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden information
Without pottery or metals, ancient Hawaiians fashioned most of what they needed from plants. This ethnobotanical garden preserves Hawaiʻi's endemic species dating from before Western contact and Polynesian-introduced plants in an ahupuaʻa (land division).

The garden is between mile markers 110 and 111.
