“Volunteers of all skills, and no particular skills”
Malu ‘Aina is an all volunteer organic non-profit peace farm that grows food to share with people in need, and to support it’s work for justice, peace, and protecting the environment.Â We can use all kinds of volunteer help, from coordinating volunteers to helping on specific projects that need to be done around the farm including: planting, weeding, harvesting, carpentry, and painting projects.Â We are looking for volunteers that can work anywhere between an hour or more a week/month to live-in residents.Â This can be a great internship opportunity for those interested in organic farming and/or non-violent activism.
In addition to our present 8-acre farm, we may soon be acquiring an adjacent 11 acres of deep soil ag land that we would like to make available to serve the community in growing organic food.Â We would like to involve individuals and groups in a cooperative effort to carry this project forward.
I am particularly interested in finding someone to pass the torch to in coordinating overall responsibility for the farm.Â After 30 years of farming, I would like to focus more on the peace, justice, and environmental educational aspects of Malu ‘Aina,Â such as demilitarizing Hawaii, and turn the farm responsibility over to the next generation. If any of the above interests you, please email or call me and let’s talk story!Â Malu ‘Aina is located just 10 miles south of Hilo in Ola’a (Kurtistown).Â Please pass the word to others who may be interested as well.Â Mahalo and solidarity for a just, peaceful, and healthy Hawaii and world.
