Kahalu’u Kūāhewa

Kahalu’u Kūāhewa is a community-based organization located in the ahupuaʻa of Kahalu’u ma uka. Located in one of Konaʻs largest intact traditional agricultural field systems preserved within a 354-acre area owned by Bishop Estate-Kamehameha Schools, the hui has documented 3,500 archaeological features, 98.7% of which are considered traditional agricultural features. Removal of invasive species, revitalizing and restoring the traditional agricultural system, and consistent outplanting of ʻulu trees at Kalaʻulu feeds a larger vision to create a sustainable food resource to the local Kona community while simultaneously preserving wahi kūpuna and reconnecting kānaka to ʻāina.
