Pono Grown builds conscious community through connecting individuals to the land, creating a culture of plants and people growing peacefully and harmoniously.


Pono is the Hawaiian word for doing what is right. Hence we support our community to grow in a right way, right in the sense of balancing individual needs with working in harmony with the land and with each other. The farm center is founded on the concepts of caring for the earth and caring for all life on the earth. We offer our community the opportunity to connect with a landscape that serves as a model for living in peace by providing the basic needs of food, water, shelter, and energy in a regenerative way. Students and visitors are encouraged to discover their conscious selves and to deepen their connection with the greater world through experiential and classroom education as well as farm demonstrations.
