Looking for volunteer help on Malu ‘Aina farm

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Looking for volunteer help on the farm

(an hour a week, more, or live in resident)

Help needed — Weeding taro patches, watering screen house, weed wacking around fruit trees, harvesting available crops, etc.

Malu `Aina is a peace and justice non-profit farm. No one is paid.  We are all volunteer.  Our main “crop” is non-violent activism on a variety of social issues including feeding the hungry and opposing war and injustice. Besides growing food to share with people in need we work for justice, peace and and protecting the environmental. We sponsor a weekly vigil in Hilo on Fridays, peace meetings, and support other various justice and peace events: i.e. opposing military expansion in Hawaii, alternatives to prison, protecting Mauna Kea, protecting Pohakuloa, and solidarity for Hawaiian sovereignty, etc.

If you are interested in volunteering, please call or email Jim Albertini 966-7622  ja@malu-aina.org

Mahalo!

Mahalo for your Solidarity in 2016 and in the difficult days ahead

Saturday, December 24th, 2016

Aloha and Mahalo  friends for your solidarity and support for justice, peace and aloha ‘aina in 2016 and continued dedication in the years ahead, which, no doubt, will involve some difficult days.  But never doubt the importance of such work, and never, ever, give up!  As the philosopher Thomas Carlyle said: “No lie can live forever.”

Annual Christmas Appeal

December 2016 

Aloha Friends,  

      Once a year, I write to ask for your help to sustain the work of Malu ‘Aina for justice, peace and a healthy planet. As an all volunteer organization, with no corporate or government funding, Malu ‘Aina has been planting seeds and sharing food with people in need for the past 36 years.  In all that we do, the spirit of Aloha ‘Aina (Love for the Land) and nonviolence guide us. But we know we can’t do it alone. It takes a movement of people power, commitment, and donations to carry on.  You have been an important part of this effort and we thank you for your solidarity in the journey.

      The stakes couldn’t be higher. One of our recent weekly Peace Vigil leaflets sums it up. “Prevent Climate Disaster & Nuclear War,” and stand in solidarity with people struggling for justice and protecting the Sacred in every way possible. In an increasingly militarized and corporate dominated world, it is hard to learn the lesson that we cannot bomb, kill, and exploit our way to justice, peace, and a healthy planet.

      Your support and solidarity keep us from being discouraged and remind us that we are stronger together. We pledge to you our commitment to carry on and never give up. Blessings of this holy season to you and your loved ones.

With gratitude and aloha,
Jim Albertini
