    No place for any volunteers yet

    Aloha Everyone,

    First, I should like to thank all those who have written to me with a desire to help. I have gotten a lot of extra projects completed. I am also learning more about hosting and the responsibilities and chores that go along with hosting. I don't mind being a camp counselor but don't want to be a baby sitter. In other words, I expect people to be mature, responsible and capable of independence.

    My name is David and have been hosting on a beautiful 2.5 acre home in Huelo, Maui, Hawaii

    In April, I sold the Noni farm in Huelo.

    Because of all the fabulous helpers over the past year, my new place is ready for planting and caretaking. It will incorporate some permaculture design elements, but will not be 100%.

    We built a two container set up with a roof between. I have a kitchen set up in a 10 by 20 Costco canopy for now. The floors are pea gravel. I love the lifestyle. One container is my bedroom and the other container could be for someone else. There is a hot shower, but not that private. Accommodations could be made.

    The help needed here is general maintenance, gardening, weeding, dog sitting and tree planting.

    I am an easy going guy. In addition to the juice business, I was a permaculture designer, bio dynamic farmer, compost maker and herbalist. I attended the UCSC Farm and Garden sustainable agriculture program in 1994. In college, I was an an Art and Art history major.

    This new property is located in Haiku, very close to the bus line and Haiku town. It's only a few minutes to Paia and the North Shore beaches. Maui has alot to offer. These are crazy times so who knows what it will be like in a few months. Now, there very little tourists, which is a mixed blessing.

    Feel free to ask questions about Maui or other hosts that I may know.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The property is seclude and private. We all like our privacy and respect one another. We prefer to maintain a low key lifestyle. We discourage loud partying and no loud music. It is a 420 friendly place. There has been some good people here in the past, some of whom I am still friendly with.

    The ocean is close by and scenic Upcountry is close.
