We use organic, sustainable and permaculture practices on an abundant tropical homestead farm. You are welcome to eat and learn to prepare farm grown and nutrient dense delicious food. As well as enjoy all that island life here has to offer, 13 unique ecosystems with beautiful beaches, desert, active volcano, rain forest and waterfalls, lush jungle and tropical pacific waters and rainbows..it is Hawai'i! We live Mauka to Makai (from the mountain to the sea) on the slopes of Mauna Loa above Kealakekua Bay.
I’m looking for hardy folks to help with whatever farm project is in season..harvesting, pruning, mulching, weeding, trimming, chainsawing, weed whacking, mowing, animal care, helping with building and maintenance of farm systems, such as rain catchment and irrigation. Also I am a midwife assistant, on-call for births, I need kid loving dependable persons who can commit to being on farm and do childcare for my children when I am called to a birth (1-2 births a month). Experience not necessary but willingness to learn, get sweaty and be dependable is! Aloha nui, I look forward to discussing your goals and hosting you 🌺
