Hoʻolaulima Workdays

Hoʻolaulima Workdays are held on one Saturday per month at Kapapa Loʻi o Kealiʻikuaʻaina in the wahi pana of Waipiʻo Valley on Hawaiʻi Island.  These hands-on, culture-based, highly educational experiences immerse volunteer groups of no more than 25 people in six-hour Hawaiian language, culture and mālama ʻāina events at our ancient five-acre taro patch complex in historic Waipiʻo Valley.  Hoʻolaulima volunteers directly contribute to the regeneration of Waipiʻo's unique wetland environment and revitalize this once highly productive area. Hoʻolaulima literally means to cause cooperation. In our case, hoʻolaulima refers to our efforts to get many hands working together to manage, preserve, regenerate and revitalize Kapapa Loʻi o Kealiʻikuaʻāina and create a vibrant, self-sustaining, intergenerational loʻi and māla outdoor learning laboratory.


If you want to stay informed about future Hoʻolaulima Workdays and other Kū-A-Kanaka programs please subscribe to our mailing list.
