Lars Woodruff and Irene Francis are tireless stewards of one of East Hawaii’s most beautiful legacy gardens. Originally created by the late Jerry Hunter, an extraordinary nurseryman who established Palms of Paradise nursery here on Hawaii as a growing grounds for his California nursery Rancho Soledad in San Diego County. This is one of the loveliest large gardens on Hawaii. The garden appears in the book Designing With Palms by Jason Dewees. Irene and Lars have not only restored the garden to its former glory but have started to make their own improvements bringing their own artistic talent to the land.
