KAIAULU PAPALOA NON-PROFIT

KEALIA FARM, is a community of farmer's on the eastside of Kauai that collectively farm about 100 acres in kealia valley. We provide everything from wetland taro to small poi millers and processors, to fruits and vegetables to local farm markets and restaurants.

We are a collection of 15 farming families, including recent Thai and Chinese immigrants , to Hawaiians who have been on this land for a thousand years. we derive most if not all of our income from our farms and provide a significant portion of Kauai grown food that our island consumes

The recent flooding devastated kealia, we lost tractors, excavators, bulldozers, trucks all of our vegetable crops and many live stock. some of our farmer's lost everything and will have no significant income for 3 to 6 months.

There is virtually no Federal assistance for these small farmer's that provide local foods, we are asking for your help in funding to clean up flood debris, repair roads and irrigation, and repair equipment so these farmer's can begin to rebuild and replant as soon as possible.

In addition to Kealia Farms, Kaiaulu Papaloa, an area non-profit, is partnering with the farm and the larger East Kauai Community, to raise funds to address damage done by the recent floods.  With volunteers we are helping people to connect to agency services, set up a staging area at the Kealia Farms to collect supplies for cleaning and food, assessing basic damages to the environment from Kealia to Wailua, and helping to organize cleanups in the watershed, coastline, and community as necessary.   Needless to write, funding is needed to do much of this work.  

We humbly ask for your kokua in helping our communities in East Kauai (Kealia to Wailua).  Mahalo piha!
