Hookuaaina at Kapalai

A working lo'i kalo and gathering place for families and youth to build relationships and restore a healthy community.

We grow kalo. Growing kalo is our means to growing young people. We provide mentoring programs to build young lives for a healthy tomorrow.

Kapalai Farms and the nonprofit Hookuaaina are located in Maunawili on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The farm and nonprofit are the vision of Dean and Michele Wilhelm. For several years, together with many volunteers, they have been working to restore what was once a working taro farm, or lo'i kalo. The purpose is to create a place that would gather and inspire the community about the importance of caring for the land and perpetuating the Hawaiian culture. Hookuaaina offers mentorship programs for youth to learn and develop important life skills. Community days are available to organizations for leadership training and relational building.

The mission is to inspire people to connect with themselves, the land, and their community through Hawaiian cultural and environmental education by offering hands-on opportunities on a kalo based organic farm that is a model of sustainability.
