We are accepting applications now for experienced farmers who want a cultural exchange in Hawaii. We have an organic farm located about 20 minutes from Captain Cook town and 1 mile up a four wheel drive road. Very rugged, remote and diversified land. It is planted with coffee, fruits, vegetables, Hawaiian healing plants and much more!!. There is a huge potential for the right people who have experienced living off grid before. Applicants must be capable of hard work and walking steep hills and be responsible for their own transportation. We require experience with some or all of the following: plants, off grid living, building, solar, plumbing, planting, harvesting, pruning, water conservation. Communal kitchen, drinking water and basic staples are provided and some organic fruits and vegetables from the farm. A few others things to know is that there are mosquitos and there is limited internet use. There are amazing beaches near by and its warm weather all year long. Blessings and we look forward to your inquiry.

We have a very large diversity of edible and medicinal plants growing on the farm. The opportunity for learning Hawaiian ethnobotany including medicinal plant uses is one of our strengths. While out and about in Hawaii you will hear and see Hawaiian culture in the food, language and music. For those who are independent and eager to learn and grow, there is much room.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The help that is required is farm help which includes tasks such as : weeding, planting, harvesting, washing fruits and vegetables and other farm improvements. Each day is different on the farm. It depends on weather and season, but mostly all days includes getting your rubber boots and gloves on and getting outside!
