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. Experience not necessary but willingness to learn and get sweaty is.
Classic Volkswagen Bus, with kitchenette. The shower and bathroom are a one minute walk down the hill at the main house.
The Big Island of Hawai’i is amazing!!! Most people walk or hitchhike around. Bus service exists, but is pretty poor. Some people bicycle, but hills and traffic are challenging. For 25 and up (due to insurance) we might sometimes be able to lend (trade additional work for) use of a vehicle if we have an extra one working!
