Sustainability starts with you and me.

We believe that Sustainability starts with the Spirit – caring for yourself and sharing your life’s gifts and passions, caring for one another in social community and for the natural environment we all share.

Welcome to Mālamalama.

We have a Vision for a Sustainable World starting with the Spirit, by hosting leading Educators and Supporters, online and at our 9.3 acre Farm and Center on Maui, Hawai’i.

We are currently in the process of upgrading our facilities and educational content to support this Vision.

Our Center Facilities

Our 9.3 acres of agricultural jungle land has over 200+ fruit trees and coffee plants, where we provide direct hands-on sustainability education to students on how to grow their own food. Our facilities can house 24-27 people, with a community kitchen, dining room, ceremonial fireplace and a large meeting space for educational workshops and classes. We are currently awaiting permitting for the expansion of our facilities.

Sustainability Education

Through direct, hands-on sustainability training and real life immersion into a community lifestyle based on Aloha Spirit here in Hawaii and universal indigenous wisdom, we help students build a healthy future for their communities and the planet. Training includes skills in these 8 major areas: Arts and Culture, Agriculture and Environment, Economics, Health and Wellness, Personal Development, Life Skills, Spirituality and Community Living.

Help & Get Involved

We need your support to help further build and grow our Sustainability Center, in particular with funding and also with skills and materials, to get our facilities upgraded and permitted. Any amount that you can give can be used as an income deduction for you on your tax returns through our non-profit status. Please get in touch to see how we can help support one another.
