Hoʻolaulima Community Workday | Go Hawaii

Hoʻolaulima Community Workday

Hoʻolaulima provides hands-on, culture-based, highly educational volunteerism experiences in the wahi pana of Waipiʻo Valley, located on the Hāmākua Coast of Hawaiʻi Island. Hoʻolaulima immerses volunteer groups of no more than 25 kamaʻāina and malihini in monthly, six-hour Hawaiian language, culture and mālama ʻāina events at Kapapa Loʻi o Kealiʻikuaʻāina, an ancient five-acre taro patch complex in historic Waipiʻo Valley. With the help of Hoʻolaulima volunteers, EA Ecoversity, an ʻōiwi-based non-profit organization, and our primary partner Kū-A-Kanaka LLC, a Native Hawaiian social enterprise, both headquartered on Hawaiʻi Island, aim to reopen this Bishop Museum lease land for wetland taro production. This means, Hoʻolaulima volunteers will 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.
