This looks and sounds amazing--if I were closer and not in the midst of a permaculture project of my own, I'd be there in a heartbeat! Since I was very young, I've always had a deep interest in tropical ecology, especially in the plants, and I have many books on the subject--alas, I have settled in a more temperate place. Annual rainfall here is around 50-55," so not quite on par with equatorial rainforest precipitation, but close to that of temperate and boreal rainforests (and our forest is a wetland forest!). I plan on finding as many hardy tropical and subtropicals that I can!

I wish you and yours all the best--it looks to be a wonderful life there :)

Hello Maayan! Thank you for sharing the opportunity to learn more about your permaculture community. Sounds so wonderful.

My husband, 2yo and I, have been actively looking to form or join an established IC, centered around many of the values and offerings you’ve described here.

We’ve been seriously considering a move, from our current home base in San Francisco, to the Big Island, as our family has a 1 acre plot that hasn’t been developed. Although our heart is in doing this passionate work within intentional community.

We’ll be visiting the Big Island from April 13-22 and could possibly look to visit your community in Maui, if the timing would work for you.

I’d love to chat more and see if there may be fit.

From what you’ve shared, we’re happily aligned on vision to share community meals, steward the land using natural techniques, permaculture, embodying healing remedies, gratitude in sharing from-the-land creations (Ray is an excellent cook and so eager to try wood fire bread!), living in sovereignty, rooted in passion to keep learning and growing, together. We’re able bodied and want to dig in physically, and also have financial investment for the community as we build and improve the current offerings and residences. My husband practices the flute and I’m getting back to my violin days. We unschool our daughter and have location independent work. In addition to community farming, we are meditation teachers, film creator and marketer.

I’d love to connect for a video chat and hear more about your community, if you’d be interested.

I’ll send you a pm Cheers!
Right! We're on it! Let's get to work tiny ad!
