Living Pono Plantation
The purpose for establishing the Living Pono Plantation is three fold. First, we seek to employ adults with disabilities within the Green Industry at a fare wage while providing them a unique opportunity to learn and gain life skills through a positive and fun alternative work experience. Secondly, by integrating several sustainable agricultural practices we will be providing Hawaii consumers with several alternatives to conventionally grown crops from the mainland as well as healing our ‘aina. Lastly, this system can be an invaluable teaching tool for students to learn about sustainability, a modern working ahupua’a, and to develop curriculum that is relevant to real world applications.
