Interns will be involved in all aspects of the farm production and marketing including help with our farmer's markets located around Oahu. We also have a growing CSA membership.

Farm Production includes weekly cycles of baby salad greens and biweekly cycles of roots, greens and other vegetables such as bush beans, okra, cherry tomatoes. Fruits include papaya, mango, passion fruit, sapodilla and citrus. We have a growing free-range chicken layer production eventually growing to 500 layers.

Our dry sunny climate is perfect for growing basil and there are many non-organic basil growers here.
