Our Other Projects

Our daily life is full of routine activities: watering the garden, setting out new seeds, cooking for our family, doing basic maintenance in the yard, clearing new land, etc.  As we think about how to improve what we do on our farm, we have ideas that are exciting and that can benefit other farmers on our island and even around the world, in other tropical areas.  Consumed by our day-to-day life, we need help to make these ideas real.  (Please visit our Blog to read first hand accounts, written by our farm interns, of their daily life here.)

With the energy and time that our interns devote to making these ideas come into reality, we’ve made great progress.  We’ve found other amazing resources that can bring new skills and information to interested farmers.  Our mission as a family and as a farm is to support environmentally and economically sustainable agriculture in tangible and meaningful ways.  It makes us happy to know that through pursuing our passion, we can have a positive impact on the world.

Please visit our Shiitake and Oyster Mushroom Growing page, our Natural Pest Protection page and our Top Bar Beekeeping page to see what we are doing.
