Help us to provide organic sustainable food for the Hawaiian community! Our mission is to expose our local community to a sustainable way of agriculture & to bring knowledge of local growing food systems to the island of Oahu.
There is a growing demand for local, organic produce throughout the State of Hawaii and Mahina Pua Farm plans to produce over 49,000 pounds of organic produce over the next 3 years to help meet this demand with your help in the Hawaii Kai area!
We are raising $50,000 for the downpayment on the farm and property so we can continue to expand our organic local vegetable and fruit produce for the greater Oahu area.
