What you'll do
Upon your arrival at Hale Akua Garden Farm & Eco-Retreat Center's main office, we will first start on our Farm & Animal Tour. Here you will take in all the beauty of Hale Akua Garden Farm! Along the way you will learn about organic gardening, plant nutrition, curing diseases through nutrition, nutritional wellness and learn sustainable farming practices - we will provide as much information as you wish depending upon your level of interest. You will have the opportunity to connect with the farm animals ranging from sheep, chickens, ducks, and fish. Many wonderful photo opportunities here! Learn how to interact with the animals, interact with them yourself, and learn about raising and caring for the animals. Then we will make beautiful Hawaiian traditional leis. The Hawaiian lei making materials will be set up for you and we will provide a demonstration for how to prep the materials from start to finish, then it will be your turn. All flowers and materials will be provided - all while in a beautiful jungle setting. Walk away with not only with beautiful photos and animal interactions but also beautiful leis for yourself and loved ones! FYI: We just recently opened a new Airbnb Account (Jan 2020) since we are a Non-Profit educational farm. Unfortunately, we lost many fabulous 5-star reviews in the process. Help us build our reviews back up & come experience a 5-star!
