We have purchased 25 acres of beautiful, fertile land near the beach in Hawaii for an ecovillage community. Our mission is to create a community that is a healthy and enjoyable place to live and focused on conscious sensuality, permaculture, emotional awareness, communication, health and spirituality.
Our values include: Peace, Ecology/Permaculture, Child/Family Friendly, Body/Sex Positive, Autonomy and Cooperation, Learning and Growth, Sobriety/Consciousness, Compassion and Love.
The property encompasses 25 acres that was previously a fruit and nut orchard. The land is between 60 and 100 feet in elevation above sea level and approximately 500 feet from the ocean. Five 3-acre lots totaling approximately 15 acres will be subdivided in the front of the property.
The land was bulldozed and planted in fruit and nut trees several decades ago. The rich a’a lava is a fertile medium for growing fruit trees such as: macadamia, avocado, papaya, banana, coconut, mango, citrus, and many other tropical and sub-tropical trees. Many macadamia, avocado, mango and other trees are still growing and producing food on the land now.
Temperatures typically range year-round between 65 and 85 Fahrenheit. Average rainfall is moderate at approximately 50-60 inches per year with slightly more in winter and less in the summer. It is in the sunny, dry part of the east side of the island. Most days are sunny and clear with occasional rain showers. Most rain falls at night. The amount of rainfall is perfect for growing most tropical fruits and is very healthy for people. The air in the Puna district is considered to be among the cleanest in the world.
It is located 1 and ½ miles from the Kalani Honua Resort and 3 miles from the famous Kehena Black Sand Beach. It is a quiet, off-grid neighborhood with some homes on both the makai (ocean) and mauka (mountain) side of the road. It is a 20 minute drive to the nearest town of Pahoa and 45 minutes to Hilo which is the main city on the island and has an international airport.
