Friend and Kalo Expert Jerry Konanui passes away

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

I feel very blessed to have known Jerry. He was full of aloha and had a deep sense of what is pono. His knowledge and love of kalo has been shared widely. His life was a gift to all. Mahalo Jerry.

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!
