Laupahoehoe Valley Restoration and Holo-holo Camp living in Hamakua, Hawaii
To get into nature and help work on a series of happy permaculture based projects, have wilderness expeditions, and learn about some wild foods and live an alternative lifestyle of food gathering and sharing
and gifting. To let your phone turn off from time to time and immerse yourself in the here and now, which is always new!
We are good people and will treat you with compassion and respect, you will see us treating each other this way and we are extremely happy with our everyday vibes. We are easygoing, nature and animal lovers, and understand and respect many walks of life. We protect our areas; for you and us alike, from anything but the best!
Hawaii, for me, is a wonderful culture and I hope to share my simple reality with those who truly want to appreciate it. I am looking exclusively for these people. I live more simply than some prefer, and currently do not own a working car. I can usually pick up and drop off at the airport but it is not a guarantee as it is a borowed car from a friend.
I have a propane hot water shower and ask that people help with propane costs if you can afford it as it is something i have to count.
Please bring your own towel for the beach and shower.
Please be prepared to ask what can be done, have some inspiration and enjoyment of physical work, and keep track of your work hours on paper so I can live my somewhat freestyle life with the seasons.
This is not a hostel, if you only want to rent a car and travel the island at breakneck speed please just do this and camp or/and stay in a proper hostel as I have a simple, slow world. Often I dont leave the valley for days. I make food, I make up new recipes with the same ingredients and take naps, and go fishing when the weather lets me.
My dog of 12 years has recently passed away and I am going through some changes and emotions lately. Hug all your dogs for me, and take them on a good walk.
Much Aloha All, and Many Blessings.
