Ohana Gardens

We are in the heart of the alternative scene on the east side of the big island.
Lots of beauty on the land and the sky at night is spectacular. Tropical fruit of all kinds for the foodies in the crowd. If you want to learn about solar, water catchment and the basics of living off grid we are a great place to learn.

At Ohana Gardens we want you to feel like family. We love our volunteers and host local potlucks twice a month for the neighborhood. Being long term residents we offer stability to our helpers.

This is a Beautiful place to give service. I love the Land, the sustainability, living off grid, soooo much fruit and land snacks!!
Things were a bit in transition here trying to get a full dedicated team and I see areas of opportunity for growth. I feel things could be a bit more organized and we definitely could use more help!!
We are working on this. I am considering staying long term.
I definitely recommend a visit!!
Come help us maintain and beautify the land!!

Ohana Gardens is a magical place! I had an amazing time volunteering there. It’s a beautiful place where you can connect with nature. The volunteering hours are fair, and they were always respected. As it is a living off the grid community, it was a very educational experience. Anita, the manager is always making sure you are having a great time. She cooks delicious vegan food, and she shares her recipes and teaches you. There are activities for enjoyment like yoga and Qigong. I loved the yoga class! Definitely I recommend Ohana Gardens!!

I truly don’t have the words to describe how wonderful my experience here was! Ohana Gardens is the most magical place with wonderful, interesting, and open minded people. You learn so much about living off grid, maintaining a property, jungle life, sustainability, and Hawai’i. The work is super fair and pretty interesting- picking fruit, gardening, restoring furniture, painting, cleaning, and more. There’s also a huge emphasis on having fun too!! Can’t recommend this place enough, it definitely changed my life. Come with an open mind and open heart and you won’t be disappointed!
