Call for Artists – Due May 17th
ALOHA One Island is a non-profit sustainability project with a flagship organic farm in Honaunau, Hawaii. We are hosting collaborative Green Living programs focused on learning to practice a more sustainable lifestyle right where you live and work, every day.
‘Green is a Verb’ - it is an empowering action we each can choose to do
Programs focus on short, easy-to-implement projects and longer term strategic sustainability efforts. Cornerstones include: local food system strengthening, renewable energy / energy efficiency tools and grants, watershed protection resources, green economy incubation, health and wellness programs, and arts and culture events. We host regular volunteer learning days and present special guest speakers and retreats that demonstrate a variety of ‘green living’ sustainability options. And for educational fun, we are hosting hands-on workshops that allow our participants to turn our farm’s local resources into hand-built products, from food to art to body care, from building materials to home gardens to renewable energy – skills you can take with you where ever you live.
We are all in the Same Canoe – grab a paddle!
