We offer Agricultural and Ecological tours, and Permaculture workshops. Join our community of land developers in preparing the land, planting, and maintaining our permaculture endeavor to nurture the existing natural island plants and trees. Participate in the harvesting of the flowers, enjoy the tasting of the fruit and other edibles now thriving.
Our lush tropical garden tour:
We start in the big open grass area at front to see highly productive avocado trees, a beautiful orange tree, and different varieties of Heliconias and Gingers blooming. We can admire a 50 year old Kukui nut tree, Ki-Plants and the Tree of Life.
After you enjoy the circle of plants, we cross over the wooden bridge to the Subtropical forest. On your right, a terraced hill in process with the development or extensive raised-bed vegatable gardens, composting areas and worm farms.
On your left you see Banana trees, a little Coconut palm, Tiger lilies, Heliconias, Gingers, Green and purple Eye Gingers on the lowest level. Take the trail to the left, you will see soft Bamboo, Ki Plants, Mock Orange bush, and a variegated pink Eureka Lemon Tree. The next bed holds a Loquat tree, pink Ginger, a mix of Heliconias interlined with purple Gingers and Dieffenbachias. In a circular area are Banana Trees and yellow Gingers. Across is a Norfolk Pine. Further down at right is our Orchid Garden with shade cover of a cluster of Manila Palms. Enter the Rose Apple Forest! Turn left down the path to see the newly transplanted Coffee Field on the right. Further along is the Mushroom Hill (oyster mushrooms). At the intersection is an approximately 80 year-old Mango Tree. Turn right. (Optional route: go straight into the Wild Rose Apple Forest, Coffee and Ginger Forests.) Yellow ginger fields are on both sides of the path. Turn left after passing these fields to see Pineapples, Bananas, Tree Tomatoes, Kava Kava, Poha Berries, and a newly planted Coffee field. Turn left to loop around agricultural storage area.

On the way back newly planted patches of gingers, heliconias and a colorful field of anthuriums surrounded by native Hapus. Field of native Awapuhi (Shampoo Ginger) on the right.
