One Earth

We want to using our environment responsibly, well and having fun at the same time.

Hawaii is an amazing creation and recreations eco system, things grow well, food can be abundant so we engage in a number of different farming systems.
We are running a Korean Natural Farm, using the techniques of IMO, growing our own LAB and using it in the gardens, with the chickens and the pigs. The KNF provides vegetables to areas of the local community as well as our cafeteria. We have a 3,400 plant aquaponics system, that also provides a range of vegetables to our cafeteria. With in the aquaponics portion of our farm we run a number of trial systems in aquaponics to see what works and what does not.
Our Appropriate Technology Village trials projects and ideas, learning from a wide range of sources, refining what others have done and passing on these skills to our students and taking these ideas to developing countries with teams and seminars.
Bio digesters, PVC water pumps, one bed aquaponics systems, water filters, solar power, construction skills are just some of the things we are involved in.
The things we learn we also teach, holding seminars ranging from one week to a month. These seminars are often grouped together for a three month course.
