Introducing La’akea: We have been gifted at least an acre, maybe more, here on Baldwin Avenue right outside of Paia. They will lease us the land and work out a partnership agreement with us so that we can each be supporting each other. ( It has irrigation!)
This group has many elements of design that push the current zoning restrictions towards a more favorable concept of “Farming Communities” and “Eco-Villages”.
Everything we want is part of their plan. They intend to host a lush forest as an educational walking tour for locals and tourists to see first hand the benefits of organic farming and wholesome living. Nurturing a live seed bank fits with their plan.
If you would like to get involved, please join the Paia Food Forest Working Group here. For a profile of the project already underway, please visit the organization’s website, through the link below.
