WELCOME One Island is a non-profit sustainability program in the Pacific / North West serving rural coastal areas of Hawaii, California and Washington. In response to the challenges of our time, our programs foster connections between inspired teachers and learners to strengthen creativity and resiliency in remote rural communities. Programs focus on short, easy-to-implement projects and longer term strategic sustainability efforts.
‘Green is a Verb’ – it is an empowering action we each can choose to do
Cornerstone initiatives have included: local food system strengthening, art and culture place-making events, renewable energy / green building, watershed protection, green economy incubation, and health and wellness efforts. We host regular volunteer learning days, green building and farm tours, and present special guest speakers and events that demonstrate a variety of ‘green values’ as sustainability options. Educational and fun hands-on ‘maker’ workshops turn our farm partner’s local resources into rewarding hand-built products – from food to art to body care, from building materials to home gardens to renewable energy – valuable skills you can take with you and enjoy where ever you live.
Come visit our programs and partners in Hawaii, California & Washington
