Thank you - looking forward to the workday from the Kokua staff at Mohala Farms! We're slowly growing and learning as a farm and beginning to get more produce coming out of the land. We're also a non-profit organization, and so are working to support greater food self-sufficiency and the use of agricultural land for local food consumption. Aloha!
Dylan and I enjoy shopping at Kokua Market on Sundays because we can always find what we need, and everyone there is very friendly. It has become our little tradition to go to Kokua market at least once on the weekends. It always amazes me that I can walk into the supplement and health/beauty isle and find something I like, while I can walk into stores with isles and isles of products and never find exactly what I was looking for.
I also like that Dylan (8 years old) feels comfortable in the store and has ventured to try new things and products. He has not gotten the taste for the raw foods in the deli, but I was so very excited to see it available, and that the items are made with produce from local farmers (most important!).
All in all, Kokua market is our numba 1 because we get what we need, support the community, and it has a positive influence on Dylan's perceptions of sustainability and citizen responsibility. Thanks!!
Well, mostly legumes and other delicacies that I can put in the solar oven. Solar cooked beans or lentils are the best beans we have ever eaten and they require minimal effort: add water, put in solar cooker, come back a few hours later, eat. solar cooking = smart slowfood with minimal effort.
