Help us on our farm!


El intercambio

We farm on Urban farms in regular home lots and on a 1/4 acre in Waimanalo where families want organic veggies! Microgreens! Volunteers will live with our family. We need light house keeping done in addition to regular farming tasks (weeding!). Wonderful organic meals are provided when the bell rings. All volunteers must have experience with hard work, willing to get dirty, and have a good memory! Meals for 5 days and room for 7 days a week.

Programa detallado

We have a busy CSA (community supported agriculture) and sales operation. You will learn every aspect of growing, harvesting, washing, packing, and selling. We have a modern style of non-certified organic farming where you grow as much as you can in small spaces. It takes creativity to farm this way and vision!
We farm organically on several plots. Some are close by and one is a 20 min drive along the Eastern Coast and the best beaches. Volunteers help out by receiving a task list every day from Vanessa that is in addition to the regular tasks written below. We pack the vehicles starting at 7 am so we can leave by 7:30-8:00am to go to the farms. There are house chores. Different tasks are on assigned days, but there is some flexibility.
