Not sure which forum is the best to post this in, so I will cross post it in a couple...

My wife and I are visiting Hawaii at the end of May for our anniversary.
We'll be spending a few days each on Kauai and The Big Island.

Can anyone suggest some permaculture farms we could visit.
We would like the chance to see what things are done, and how they are different from Oregon.
We also would love to buy some local produce to enjoy while we are there.

Any help appreciated. Thanks Much

I spent 6 months in Hawaii on the big Island at La'akea, I liked it. I would also recommend Gaia Yoga Gardens. and Evening Rain Farm, not sure if they are still around though. There are several others i visited when i was there. names slip my mind at the moment. It depends on what you want to see also. Communities? For profit Farms? Aquaculture?

hope this helps a little. Have a good Honeymoon, what a good idea. Be sure to check out Kehenna beach, and Hidden beach. Kehenna is easy to find... Watch out for the Fire ants! and the Rat lung disease.
Acetylsalicylic acid is aspirin. This could be handy too:
