Volunteering on Vacation - Maui, Hawaii sponsored by Pacific Whale Foundation

O'o Farm

Join us to work on an exquisite organic farm in Kula. O’o Farm is a unique and divergent multi- faceted operation that showcases a working farm like no other. Located in the misting forest of Waipoli, Kula Maui, its 8.5 acres sustains numerous crops that have been developed from virgin land.

In a true pioneering spirit, over the past seven years they have expanded operations to now include greenhouses and a burgeoning agritourism operation, all the while becoming intimate with the venue’s microclimate, flora, and fauna progressing in a manner respectful of the farm as a living organism in stasis with its surrounding environment.

Meet at O'o Farms at 8:45 on Wednesday mornings in Kula. The project work lasts from 8:45 until 11:30 and will include assorted farm chores. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring a light jacket that you do not mind getting a little dirty, water, and sunscreen. Gloves and gardening tools are provided. Be sure to call (808) 249-8811 in advance to sign up!

***Please note the volunteer tote bag is not included in this project.
