Watershed Management:

Over the past four decades, Kaʻala Farm has developed expertise in the ancestral knowledge of growing food, managing water resources, and bringing people together in a spirit of shared responsibility.

Kaʻala is a member of the  Wai‘anae Mountains Watershed Partnership which “brings people together to responsibly manage watershed areas, native species and their habitats, and historical, cultural and socioeconomic resources for all who benefit from the continued health of all of the Waiʻanae Mountains ahupuaʻa.”

As part of the Waiʻanae Mountains Watershed Partnership activities, volunteer groups at Kaʻala work to restore the watershed restoration and experience one of the only native dryland forests on Oʻahu.

We Need Your Help!

We’re looking to expand the learning spaces at Kaʻala Farm. We’ve added our project blueprint below.

Any contribution that you can make to this effort will go a long way. Monetary donations provided by you and other individuals and organizations will pay for materials, equipment, transportation, technical assistance, and nourishment for the many volunteers involved in building a safe and spiritual place for generations to come.

Mahalo to all who have supported us and Aloha ʻĀina
