Leslie Wilcox sits down with Chipper and Hau'oli Wichman, a longtime husband-and-wife team who head the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai. Chipper, chief executive officer of NTBG, grew up on Oahu in a privileged family but attended Roosevelt High School. His wife and executive assistant Hau'oli had modest beginnings in Nanakuli before her family moved to Kahului. The two reveal how the Hawaiian language and Hau'oli's tutu led to the couple's romance and discuss their "bigger kuleana" of land stewardship.
