Kanaloa Farm and intentional community is rooted in sustainability. Living off the land, creating community, communication, play, dance, acroyoga, community meals, beach, adventures! We are a small but simple community living peacefully and in harmony with the land.
Beginning - Kanaloa is the goddess of the ocean in Hawaiian mythology. Named after Kana who is the queen dog at the farm. She inspired and formed the loving bond through her licks, cuddles and balltime. Kanaloa farm is situated on 1 acres in Hawaiian Paradise Park in Kea'au Hawaii. Kanaloa farm is in its infancy and by no means perfect. Rome wasn't built in a day!
Philosophy - To create community, feed the community, come together as community; through blessings of the land.
Phase 1 2019- 5 committed members. Build cabin for living quarters, expand 2 bedrooms, bathroom, and communal kitchen. Build more garden beds, steady flow of produce, Rock wall and gated entrance to Kanaloa farm. Create a solid community base.
Phase 2 2020- 10 committed members. Pay off loans. To expand from 1acre to 2acres. Create community dinners for ourselves and those that walk through our doors. Sprout thousands of seedlings into the 'aina (land) that cultivate and nourish ourselves and the 'aina we take care of. Generate income for the community to thrive and live. Create week long acroyoga retreats.
Phase 3 2021- 15-20 committed members. Purchase 3 acres to continue to grow the community. Build more housing. Bulldoze forest to create more land space. Bring in soil, mulch, cinder to be 100% sustainable.

To make Kanaloa farm thrive and continue to grow, Air bnb is the main source of income to make this happen. Maintaining it is the bedrock foundation to cultivate love and community.
Our community is in its infancy, we are by no means perfect, we are a work in progress. We welcome ideas, learning and living in a community, for committed, opened hearted, dedicated individuals that agree with our values. I am creating this community to bring together what has been lost in modern society, community. We are looking for like minded, responsible, communicative, hard working adults.

Many wonders abound nearby to explore including Volcanoes National Park (a must, only 40 minutes away), Kalapana and Kaimu black sand beaches and active lava flows! The Makuu Farmers Market is held on Sundays at the south end of Hawaiian Paradise Park, next to the highway and is filled with vendors offering many unique items in addition to local fruits and vegetables. You'll also want to plan a day trip up the beautiful north coast to the view the incredible Waipio Valley, which is sacred ground to us native Hawaiians. Access beyond the view point is limited to 4 wheel drive (which you can rent from me or in Hilo) or you can pay for a guided tour into the valley.
I have a simple, drama free, private, lifestyle and prefer to keep it that way. I am looking for open minded, respectful volunteers who want to experience a Laidback Hawaiian Lifestyle. Hawaiʻi is truly paradise.
