Programa detallado

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to review our farm. My husband and I look forward to meeting and sharing our land with open-hearted and animal-friendly people.

Please review the following information to see if you feel our farm would be a good fit. Our priorities are to book packers who like to start early, around 7 or 8. Those who like to go to bed early and get up early would be best suited.

We are looking to host those who eat or who are open to trying the path of plant-based foods, vegetarian (also no cooking of eggs, dairy is ok), or vegan while here. Also, no smoking, drinking, or drugs while on the property.

We feel the biggest benefit of staying here is that you will make deep connections with the other helpers and renters,(This land is a sacred space), everyone can learn and have fun but keep in mind this is not a party atmosphere.


Actividades & Turnos

We have a large greenhouse that needs lots of help, so hopefully, we will have veggies to share soon. The property has hundreds of fruit trees such as avocados, soursop, mountain apple, rollenia, abiu, papayas, and other exotic trees. Most of the trees are still young, so produce is limited but we share when we have an abundance. Right now we may have rollenia, and coconut meat to share.


We ask for 17 hours of help per week, with the week starting on your first night. As long as we are reserving your spot, you are responsible to help the 17 hours even if you camp or stay elsewhere for a day or more while exploring the island. We prorate to 2 hours 30 min per night if you leave before your week starting date.

Quiet hours start from 9 PM to 7 AM with the community hang-out area closing down at 10 PM.

When there is a volcanic eruption, it is common to experience an increase in pests and bugs in the region. As this is a natural cause and beyond our control, we first and foremost ask for the understanding of volunteers. We also request transparency in bringing this issue to our attention so that we can take appropriate measures.
