Those of us at Hanakehau Learning Farm created this blog to keep our volunteers, visitors, friends, family and partners updated on farm happenings, workshops, and progress.
For those of you who haven’t visited us yet, we hope to have you over soon! We are a grassroots organization dedicated to reclaiming and providing cultural space for our lahui to learn/practice/engage in Hawaiian traditions and practices.
Why are we called a Farm? The short answer is, it is a farm. We’ll be restoring lo`i kalo, growing a small garden, and planting native and non-native food plants and others for material, lei, ceremony, etc. However, our real focus is on growing consciousness and helping to raise our keiki to be knowledgeable in their cultural practices, our history, and the current political context we face today.
Mahalo nui to all of you who have volunteered your time, trucks, dirt, sweat, and energy to making the farm happen! We’re on our way.
Check back in soon for updates!
