A Little More About Us

We are inspired by our Polynesian climate, by Hawaiian, Biodynamic, and Korean farming techniques, and we have joined forces with an intention to empower families to grow food easily by taking notice of the foods that grow (and grow easily) in our region.

We have received mentorship, guidance and support over the years from incredible Hawaiian treasures like Uncle George Kahumoku Jr.Kumu Raylene Ha’alelea Kawaiae’a, Lei'ohu Ryder as well as cultural leaders from HOCVS.

We hope to serve as an agent of outreach and education, inspiring community to grow food in their yards, and to serve as an example that more sustainable living need not be daunting or overwhelming. Begin with what plants thrive in your region, and a little aloha, and the rest will follow!

What We Offer

We provide resources and hands on activities for keiki, from learning how to make poi the traditional way, to making tinctures, ferments and other value added products. 


We offer weekly garden classes, learning about soil regeneration, compost-making, pest management, and creating delicious food from our garden plants.
