Tom and I moved to Hawaii 5 years ago after we retired. We have a 5 acre property and with family are slowly creating a small farm, growing a variety of citrus, avocados,pineapple, bananas as well as a variety of tropical fruits. We also raise chickens. All the dwellings on the property are totally off grid using solar energy and rainwater harvesting.Our vision is to create an off grid homestead and farm using organic growing methods and decreasing our carbon footprint. Our goal is to curb our personal impact on climate change and global warming, even if it is only in a very small way. As environmental activist, Bill McKibben,says "The problem with climate change is that it's very large, and as individuals we seem quite small against it, so it's easy for people to feel disempowered." We hope that in some small way, people who stay in our cabin, will feel empowered to make their own small changes. This can be as basic as a shift in thinking from mindless energy use to "mindful" energy usage, like turning out unneeded lights. We believe that millions of small changes can create big results
There is something magical about the sun providing your energy, the rain your water, and feeding the trees with your organic wastes.. We enjoy living simply and in harmony with the earth.We love interacting with people and enjoy the diversity it brings to our lives.
