    Description

    Aloha! My partner and I are starting a permaculture eco community. We just recently bought raw jungle and have been slowly building up our off grid homestead from ground zero. This is a perfect opportunity for people who are looking to learn and don’t mind simple living.

    Our vision is to provide a space for people to learn about permaculture, feel inspired to co- create projects and experience personal growth.

    We are both pretty chill people who love to adventure and hang by the ocean. We love meeting new people and spreading the good vibes. We especially love to travel internationally when we can!

    I have done two yoga teacher trainings and studied holistic nutrition. My partner is a reiki master that likes to surf and go spear fishing. We are both more than happy to share our skills and knowledge with you.

    I have my permaculture design certificate and would love to share my knowledge in the form of a permaculture internship. We are looking for people who feel inspired and passionate to learn about permaculture in a hands on setting. In this course people would get to create and manage their own projects.

    Let’s Co -create a beautiful landscape and community together!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn permaculture techniques depending on what we are doing at the time: possibly natural building, polyculture garden design, rainwater harvesting system, mushroom cultivation, Korean natural farming, food forest implementation and design, building a chicken coop...etc. Also, if you want to do art or murals on the property, teach yoga etc that is welcomed.

    If you have a specific interest I can try to facilitate that learning experience.

    People will also learn what it takes to live the off grid lifestyle.

    We would like to make time for taking you on adventures around the big island to our favorite spots!

    The help will generally be planting fruit trees, making garden beds, possible building projects along with general day to day maintenance for the work trade.

    In addition: the permaculture internship will allow you to create/ design your own projects. I would facilitate the learning of various techniques and designs. This can only be offered for people willing to do an extended stay.

    Overall it’s a very simple off grid jungle lifestyle. All our water is harvested from the rain. We use solar for electricity.

    We have a compost toilet, shower with hot water that works sometimes.

    Our kitchen area is a communal outdoor space with a two burner stove, and solar fridges that work sometimes and a sink.

    Living spaces for workawayers are platforms in the jungle with a tarp over it and a tent big enough to fit a queen air mattress.

    We are 25 mins from the beach.

    We are always trying to build and improve our facilities.

    If you arrive in kona air port you will need to take a few hour bus to Hilo and we can pick you up from there. The other option is to fly straight into Hilo. We live about a half an hour from the air port.
