Live, eat, learn, work and play on a tropical farm in paradise. Hawaiian Sanctuary is an eco-retreat and permaculture center located on the Big Island of Hawai’i.

Our internship program is ideal for those who want to actively engage in a co-creative, intentional community environment while practicing sustainable living. We provide opportunities to integrate with nature, live in harmony with the land, grow your own food, drink water from the sky, and harness energy from the sun.

It is a challenging, yet rewarding, experience that will enrich your mind, body, and spirit.

Our internship program consists of ‘tracks’ which are different ways to contribute to our operations – kitchen, permaculture, guest services, housekeeping, media marketing, and maintenance. Ultimately, our goal is to offer you a unique and empowering, hands-on educational opportunity while supporting our farm and retreat center operations in the high vibe spirit of Aloha.

Aloha Guest Services

Media Marketing

We are looking for skilled specialists with various media skills including social media marketing, content writing, photography, videography, graphic design, web design, SEO, and more. Do you have a well practiced media skill you would like to contribute? Send us your resume! This track is for a combination of creative, techy personalities. $795/mo.
