Malu ‘Aina – Volunteers of All Skills, and No Particular Skills, Needed!
APPEALS, 16 Aug 2010
If you are interested in organic farming and helping a non-profit peace farm to grow food to share with people in need, supporting its work for justice and peace, please email me or give me a call. We can use all kinds of volunteer help, from helping to find and coordinating volunteers, organizing or helping on specific projects that need doing –planting, weeding, harvesting, carpentry, painting from an hour or more a week/month on the farm, to live-in residents.
I am particularly interested in finding someone to pass the torch to in coordinating overall responsibility for the farm. After 30 years of farming, I would like to focus more on peace and justice organizing such as demilitarizing Hawaii, and turn the farm responsibility over to the next generation.
In addition to our present 8-acre farm, we may soon be acquiring an adjacent 11 acres of prime ag land that we would like to make available to serve the community in growing organic food. We would like to involve individuals and groups in a cooperative effort to carry this project forward. If any of the above interests you, let’s talk story! Please pass the word to others who may be interested as well. Mahalo.

Note from TMS Editor Antonio C. S. Rosa: I have lived at Malu Aina when I was doing my Ph.D. work at the University of Hawaii in the 90s. I highly recommend the experience to activists, students, nature lovers, hard workers for peace/social justice/anti-militarism, and all those interested in improving the lot of our planet – and their own lives as human beings. You work in the farm, do research, engage in nonviolent direct actions, connect, learn, make a difference. Simple living, high thinking. No pain, no gain. Making the best of our short lives here.
