Partnering with Westside Hawaiian Homesteaders
Sharing Knowledge for Hawaiian Home Lands:
We believe that local westside farmers with hands-on experience in regenerative and ahupua'a-based agriculture are vital to the food security and physical wellness of west Kaua'i. Through our years of collaboration with westside Hawaiian homesteaders we are helping bring life back to the westside Hawaiian home lands.
Our westside Hawaiian homesteader community is one of our key program partners. Local knowledge is shared between us, as peers. We are also able to provide ag assistance and resources when our homesteader community requests it. Together, we know a lot about our westside lands and what it takes to make the land thrive.
Since 2010 we have helped our Hawaiian homesteader community to develop a Farm and Irrigation Plan for Hawaiian homelands at Pu'u Opae. We will continue to support the advancement of this Plan through peer to peer mentorship, knowledge and resource sharing, and ag training needs.
