Sustainable Hawaii Coming this October

PRI-USA Offers a Unique Series of Permaculture Courses on Isle of Molokai

In partnership with Sust`aina ble Molokai and the Ho`ala Hou Program, the Permaculture Research Institute USA is proud to announce an upcoming series of key Permaculture courses on the Island of Molokai, Hawaii.

We are offering the following four foundational courses between October and December this year:

These courses will be held in conjunction with the Ho`ala Hou Program, a substance abuse and prevention program that works with youth and families to set up up community garden plots. Courses will take place on Ho`ala Hou’s 20-acre site.

This series is also part of an island-wide initiative with local nonprofit Sust`aina ble Molokai to work toward the goals of the Molokai Sustainability Plan, a plan created by the people of Molokai that honors Hawaiian traditional and cultural pathways alongside modern strategies for a sustainable future.

For more information and to register for these courses, please visit the Permaculture Research USA website at

Aloha and A hui hou!


  1. This is going to be an incredible series of courses. We’re working with Malia Akutagawa of Sust’ainable Molokai to train a key group of locals so they can incorporate Permaculture tools into their existing programs and also become Permaculture teachers for future courses on the Island. We are hoping this will exponentially increase the skills and labor needed to repair the island’s ecosystems and halt erosion to its reefs. Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this Pono initiative.

  2. He’s in Hamakua. He’s also buddies with some other permaculture types working at the Waipio on Horseback ranch. He was kind enough to give me a great tour of some permaculture gardens when I stumbled upon him at a farmer’s market recently. Really knew his stuff. I’m surprised all the permaculturalists on that island don’t know of each other.

  3. i know him, he’s a fellow permaculturalist of mine, what’s it to ya? this is a big island were all spread out over here
