Ha’ikū— On the island of Maui, William S. Merwin, poet laureate, transformed seventeen acres of depleted, dried-up pineapple farm into one of the most complete palm collections in the world. Fifty years of tree planting has resulted in this lush jungle, now known as The Merwin Conservancy. These photographs were made while volunteering with the groundskeeper.
