Our project is a vegan permaculture and animal rescue non-profit, established in 2017. We have rescued dozens of pasture-animals from the 2018 lava flow and Big Island Dairy closure. We also have a couple of gardens and fruit trees all over the property, which are beginning to produce. Our mission is to teach food independence and treat animals with love and respect, without the intention of commercial exploitation.

We are looking for volunteers to come and help with the ongoing tasks of building the food gardens and tending to the animals (donkeys, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, birds, dogs, and cats). We also have occasional construction, fencing, and mechanical projects for those with these types of skills.
The accommodation is a large yurt, about 700 sqft, fully furnished, with a simple kitchen inside (small fridge, burner, microwave). It hosts up to three people comfortably. There is a toilet/laundry room outside, as well as an outdoor shower. Parking is provided for your vehicle. The laundry facility is also available for your use. The property and structures are completely off-grid.
We have availability at the sanctuary from now until October 19.
We are 11 miles from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, 15 miles from Hilo. There is a free bus system that can take you to other parts of the island. No alcohol, drugs, smoking, or cooking meat/fish on property.
