Kamāwaelualani

Our mission is to protect, preserve, and perpetuate Kauaʻi’s culture and ʻāina through education that advances cultural and environmental sustainability. Kauaʻi is a wahi pana (special/storied place). It is our kuleana (responsibility) for both kamaʻāina (locals) and mākaʻikaʻi (visitors) to kōkua (help) to protect and preserve Kauaʻi’s natural and cultural gifts.

Our aim of all of our efforts is to honor our past, strengthen our present, and uplift our future, while enacting our individual and collective kuleana to Kauaʻi and our shared global commons. We instill a sense of pride in place, self-reliance, and righteous relationships with Kauaʻi’s landscapes, heavenscapes, and waterways.

Learn about Sustainability in Kaua’i

Join us for a day’s adventure with a friendly local guide on the north side of Kaua’i and learn about the island’s sustainability goals to increase local food production, distribution, and responsible consumption. Be a part of achieving this goal through hands-on in the farm with local farmers and eating locally-sourced cuisine.

Learning about local food production from planting to harvesting Mālama ‘āina at Kilauea Community Garden Center:

  • Harvest in a local farm with local farmers

  • A Farm-to-Table Lunch experience

  • A tour of Slim’s Growers Farm

  • Taking home fresh produce

Not too long ago, Hawaiʻi was once a fully sustainable island nation capable of eating sustainably from the ʻāina (land). Today, an estimated 85% of what we eat is imported into the islands.
