Natural Farming in Hawi
The Palili ‘O Kohala Cooperative is a ten-family taro growing cooperative that addresses food self-sufficiency, food security and economic development in North Kohala. Located just minutes from Hawi town, Palili ‘O Kohala and its Natural Farming Learning Lab offer a perfect introduction to North Kohala’s deeply-rooted agricultural history. Visitors are invited to tour the farm’s taro fields, wetland taro patch, innovative odorless piggery and chicken house, and to gain hands-on experience in chemical-free farming techniques.
Visitors are also invited to the annual Palili ‘O Kohala Lu’au — an annual event which takes place at the Natural Farming Learning Lab and includes Hawaiian music, local food, workshops and demonstrations.
