About the work exchange program
Lokahi Garden Sanctuary’s work exchange farm program affords a great opportunity for those wishing to gain a direct experience of working on the land. Volunteers assist in maintaining the 10 acres of sanctuary forest, trails, and vegetable and medicinal herb gardens.
Work involves the following
- tending the gardens
- tree planting
- plant nursery work
- caring for animals.
Supervision and training by the hosts and farm management staff plus occasional classes support the hands on learning. You are expected to work 30 hours per week. The volunteers will be tent camping (bring your own tent with a good rain fly) and will have use of a full bathroom. Volunteers prepare meals in the group kitchen utilizing the organic fruits and veggies available on the farm.
Lokahi Garden Sanctuary is a short walk into Hawi town where there is live music several nights a week. Volunteers are invited to explore the Big Island on their own , with each other and/or their hosts. Some adventure options for volunteers can include kayaking, snorkeling with dolphins, turtles and humpback whales, learning to surf, and hiking to a black sand beach.
Dance and movement is also available (hula, pilates, yoga, qi qong, african dance, improvisational and ecstatic dance etc.).
Lokahi Garden Sanctuary accepts up to 3 volunteers at a time. A 3 month commitment with a two-week trial period is required.
