On the rugged Hana coast, along the far eastern shores of the Hawaiian island of Maui, Kahanu Garden grows in splendid isolation, nestled in the one of the largest native hala (Pandanus) forests in the Islands. Plant collections from the Pacific Islands are the focus here, particularly plants of value to the Hawaiian people as well as other cultures of Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. Kahanu Garden is situated in the storied land of Honoma’ele and home to Pi’ilanihale Heiau, a massive lava-rock structure that is believed to be the largest ancient man made structure in Polynesia. This awe-inspiring cultural site in the garden is registered as a National Historic Landmark.
Visitors to Kahanu Garden will learn about the cultural relationships between people and these remarkable plants that were transported around the Pacific on ancient voyaging canoes. Among the different ethnobotanical collections at Kahanu Garden is the world’s largest collection of breadfruit cultivars, which serves as a germplasm repository for this important South Pacific food crop.
Kahanu Garden and Preserve is part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 that has a mission to enrich life through discovery, scientific research, conservation, and education by perpetuating the survival of plants, ecosystems and cultural knowledge of tropical regions.
The purpose of Ke Ao Hāli’i is to protect and preserve the natural and cultural resources of the Hāna moku and the customary and traditional practices of Native Hawaiians of the region; to hold title to and own interests in real property or to hold easements; to preserve and manage the area’s natural, cultural, scenic, historic and marine resources for the benefit, education and enjoyment of our community and future generations.
We seek to acquire and steward important coastal properties in the Hana area, with a current focus on the Maka’alae and Mokae areas.

The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park is daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Trails in the Kīpahulu District open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm include: Pīpīwai Trail and Kūloa Point Trail. We recommend starting the Pīpīwai Trail early and no later than 3:00 pm to ensure you are out of the park when the gate closes at 5:00 pm.
We, the Kipahulu ‘Ohana, are a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating residents and visitors of the “ways of old” through cultural demonstrations and hands-on activities. Using the wisdom and spiritual guidance of our kupuna (elders, learned teachers), we seek to re-establish a Hawaiian lifestyle in Kipahulu. By initiating sustainable projects, dividing the labor, and sharing the results we will preserve our culture.
Kipahulu Ohana operates Kapahu Living Farm, a traditional wetland taro farm located in Haleakala National Park.
Kolea cottage, a stand-alone timber-built octagonal house, dubbed the “round house” (permit t20120005) is located 3 miles from Hana Town on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala and is surrounded by lawn carved out of the jungle in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests will enjoy the serenity of this setting and are welcomed to tour the farm and gardens, or delight in the dawn and dusk of the bird chorus while enjoying the modest ocean view from the lanai. Owners are on-site to provide any assistance needed.
The overarching vision of Ma Ka Hana Ka ‘Ike (MKHKI) is to increase Hāna’s self-sufficiency by providing meaningful learning opportunities that strengthen intergenerational relationships, environmental stewardship, cultural practices, and life skills, while meeting real and urgent community needs. Our approach can be summed up as returning youth to their rightful role as caretakers of their community.
MKHKI’s three main programs work in a holistic way—providing solutions to urgent issues while working to create systemic change that targets the root causes of these issues. Our Building Program installs handicap-access improvements for community members in need, while our Mahele Farm and Mālama Hāloa programs reintroduce healthy dietary and lifestyle choices, grounded in Hawaiian culture and connection to ‘āina (land). We provide services at no cost to low-income families, while our youth earn educational stipends and vocational skills training, changing the perpetuation of a low-income population in our isolated region. And we offer hands-on learning opportunities to youth who fail to thrive in the traditional academic setting, while providing our public school with an alternative educational approach that really works.

Our developing farm is a recent establishment in the community, and will blend food growth with that of a conservatory replica of a historical food forest to attain a greater sense of agro-economic diversity, environmental restoration, and food security for Hawaiʻi.
