The Hawaii Institute of Pacific Agriculture is a non-profit organization and farm on the northern coast of Hawaii Island that focuses on regenerative agriculture. The organization works to build a sustainable food system based on permaculture principles in order to restore the health of the soil, water, and air resources. It provides hands-on experience for volunteers and students about organic farming and sustainable living practices. The institute also hosts educational workshops, events, and classes that cover topics such as composting, natural building, and permaculture. By connecting people to the land, HIOPA hopes to restore the health of both people and ecosystems so that future generations can benefit from the abundance of Hawaii’s natural resources. Ultimately, its main goal is to create a more resilient agricultural system for Hawaiʻi. Additionally, HIOPA advocates for policy changes that promote regenerative farming and food justice. Through its efforts, HIOPA works to provide healthy and affordable food for all in Hawaii. The institute is also involved in research projects on topics such as water conservation, plant diversity, soil fertility, and carbon sequestration.
