Driving onto Rocky and Gwen Campbell’s property in Pu’uanahulu, I found myself driving up an attractive stamped and stained driveway into a landscape with an expanse of well mowed grass, well-manicured beds of ornamental plants, growing areas for edible plants and the occasional park bench placed in the shade of a tall tree.
