There are several opportunities if you would like to get involved with the community and get to know your neighbors. Our different committees are always looking for volunteers to help organize activities within the neighborhood and help keep our community beautiful.
The Grounds Committee oversees the Common Areas within our community which includes the landscape maintenance of the common grounds, three lakes, walking paths, mailbox areas and cul de sacs. This very important committee is made up of residents who volunteer their time to develop projects that maintain and improve the appearance of our naturally wooded community.
We meet quarterly on the second Tuesday at 6:00 PM for an hour or so. The 2018 meetings are on June 12 and October 9th, the dates will be posted on our website. We meet in the MUD building located at 14410 Mauna Loa.

Gardening by the month - June
Planting – Use larger containers to avoid frequent watering. In June plant summer blooming perennials and annuals. Keep hanging baskets out of hot afternoon sun.
Vegetable Gardens – Enjoy your harvest of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc. You can still plant eggplants, squash, and pumpkins from seed. Keep an eye out for pests, especially leaf-footed bugs on tomatoes. Provide water for birds nearby, as they sometime peck your fruit and vegetables seeking out moisture.
Mowing – Raise lawn mower blades to cut 3 inches high to retain moisture and prevent diseases and pests.
Weeding – Keep up with weeding in early morning hours. Make sure areas are mulched properly to reduce amount of sprouting weeds
Pruning – Pinch tips of coleus to avoid flowering and encourage bushier and compact growth. Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to promote new blooms. Dead head young Vitex trees to encourage repeat blooms. Remove any diseased or insect damaged foliage on plants.
Fertilizing – Fertilize containers and vegetable beds with slow release organic fertilizers such as micro life or with a liquid fertilizer such as John's Recipe
Water – Deep root watering on trees, lawns and shrubs is best. It encourages roots to move down into the soil where they will be less susceptible to moisture changes. Avoid frequent short periods of watering. Keep your azaleas well-watered as this is the time of year they are setting next year’s blooms. We have a variety of soaker hoses, sprinklers and gatorbags to help out with watering
Pests – Keep an eye out for pests as well as beneficial insects in your vegetable garden. Pick off pests by hand. Check for snails and slugs early in the morning, when they are active. Pests are very active this time of year, so check your garden daily!
Orchids – Don’t let roots dry out on orchids outside. Shady spots with filtered sunlight are best. Fertilize with a weak liquid solution for orchids.
Birds – Change water regularly in bird baths and keep them full.
Humans- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, and wear protective sun gear, use mosquito repellents and granules for protection from bites.
