In 1988, retiree and former member of the 100th Infantry Battalion/442nd RCT sought and received permission to landscape a small portion of unused space at the KapiÊ»olani Community College with the intention of planting and cultivating a cactus and succulent garden. Working seven days a week with seeds and plants ordered from catalogs, he crafted a small but beautiful garden. Since that time, Moriso and an ever-changing team of volunteers have cultivated the original space and expanded the garden to expand an immense space running along the lower edge of the campus. The garden is a famous tourist spot and botanical site, attracting many thousands of visitors since its creation. The cactus garden won the Outdoor Circle Beautification Award in 1990 and 1998. And after all these years, Moriso Teraoka still works in the garden he began as a work of passion. You will find some of the cactuses featured below in our garden.
