Kokua Market

The only natural foods cooperative in Hawai`i!



Hale Halawai

Volunteer Community Work Project

At Mohala Farms


Saturday, March 13th: 8 am – 6 pm






Please Join us for Phase II of Rock wall construction



We will be using cement mortar to hold together the stones around the post holes and for the caprock (top layer) of stone. Please bring a trowel if possible.



Hale Halawai is being built as a gathering place:

  • to strengthen our connection to the ‘aina
  • to celebrate the life-giving nourishment of the land, and
  • to support healthy, thriving & self-sufficient local communities in Hawaii




Come participate in this ancient and unique style of traditional Hawaiian construction, led by Master builder Francis “Palani” Sinenci of Hana, Maui.
Food and refreshments for the day will be provided. Overnight camping is
available both Friday and Saturday nights. Please
RSVP
to Mark Hamamoto at 478-8469 if you are planning to come, or for more
information.



MOHALA FARMS is a 6-acre non-profit farm in Wai’alua seeking to foster healthy local communities in Hawaii
through sustainable agriculture, lifelong education and cultural and creative
arts. We were formed in 2006 and are now organically certified and providing
healthy produce to a growing number of individuals, families, stores and
restaurants around O’ahu -- including to KOKUA MARKET! We specialize in growing kale, collard greens, swiss chard, beets, radishes, salad mixes and a variety of fresh herbs.



A he nui ka i’ini e ho’ohui i na kamahele like’ole

I ho’okipa i’aai i kai hiki mai i ka moku hanai o Mailikukai

(And great is the desire to gather together travelers from diverse and distant places that those who have arrived are welcomed to the generous district of
Mailikukahi)



DIRECTIONS:

From Honolulu


H-1 to H-2.


H-2 past Schofield Barracks. Keep going forward. At fork in road, take left fork, following sign to Mokuleia (right fork is to Haleiwa).


Along Kaukonahua Road, drive through agricultural fields, then begin winding down road through ironwood trees (total of about 6-7 miles). When the road levels out and straightens out, look for
flashing light directly OVER the road (not on the side of the road). This is
Thompson’s Corner. Turn left at Yellow Iron gate with sign “Goats for Sale”. Keypad on left,
with code 2580*. Head down this paved road towards Waianae
mountains. Go straight ½ mile, past ruins of old church and
through second Green gate. Keypad on left with code 2580#. Go straight about
500 yards, past cemetery on right, then past wooden fence on left. Driveway is on
left immediately after wooden fence.



From Windward Side


Take Kamehameha Hwy to Haleiwa, and drive all the way through Haleiwa Town (don’t go on Bypass
road). At Weed Circle (main rotary just outside Haleiwa), take the second right
(sign says “Mokuleia”). Keep going straight on this road until the stop sign
with the yellow flashing light over the road. Go straight through intersection,
through Yellow Iron gate with sign “Goats for Sale”. Keypad on left, with code 2580*. Head
down this paved road towards Waianae mountains.

Sounds like a terrific event Mark. I'm sorry, but will be working that day and not able to attend. Good luck with phase two. I'm excited to come out and see Mohala again soon.
