To take a course with us at Hale Akua Garden Farm, please call Shiva or Doris at Hale Akua Garden Farm or Cindy at Pali Uli Gardens at the numbers listed above.

Our introductory course will include an introduction to the science of composting and worm composting. In addition, you will be given a very basic introduction to aquaponics beekeeping and biochar production.  We look forward to introducing you to the wonderful world of organic gardening and permaculture and to your taking home some basic skills in organic gardening that you can then use at home, even if you live in an apartment. More detailed courses are also available upon request at Hale Akua Garden Farm. Please see our farm tutorial page for more information about the other courses.

Our introductory course includes accommodations at a price of $140 a day plus tax. Please contact Shiva or Doris at Hale Akua Garden Farm or Cindy at Pali Uli Gardens for more information about our introductory course and accommodations.
