Palaka Moon Farm
Thanks to a generous grant from Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, we’re transforming the farm into a sustainability learning center & innovation incubator. We’ve built our first nine of several dozen learning stations & are eager to begin the next dozen or few. Applied science, research, development, deployment & refinement makes Palaka Moon Farm a fabulously fertile & fun place to learn, work & play.
Sweet Home Waimanalo
We’re helping Sweet Home create an even more vibrant, fun, sustainable restaurant & educational space. The additional partnership with Palaka Moon Farm will provide tastier & more nutritious, locally sourced foods & help move Sweet Home closer toward zero waste by converting food scraps, compostables & grease into feed stocks, soil amendments and fuels.
Healthy Food Systems
To improve the health of our local food system, we need to understand the interdependencies within the food supply chain and the resources & policies that influence them. Tracking imports, exports & locally grown foods/crops by acres, weight, dollars, calories &/or nutrients can begin to highlight gaps & weaknesses within the system, and allow data-driven decisions to more efficaciously move us in a healthier direction.
Health, Wellness & Security
For all to prosper, we must have equitable access & ability to satisfy our most basic needs of health & security. Understanding our intricate interdependencies deepens proportionately with enhanced physical, emotional, cognitive & spiritual need-satisfaction within our ecological, socio-cultural and economic systems, enabling us to progressively act more efficaciously in the best interests of all.
