Kapi'olani Community College
Cactus Garden

The Kapi'olani Community College Cactus Garden was founded by Mr. Moriso Teraoka in 1988. Mr. Teraoka, who enjoys collecting plants, donated the Cactus Garden plants, which he ordered from various catalogs.

He then volunteered his time to design and care for the garden for the first couple of years. Eventually, Mr. Teraoka, who is well into his 70's, decided to return to school. Today, he maintains the collection.
