The event will begin with a farm tour that will highlight the aquaponic system, free ranged poultry, permaculture food forest, production fields, and integration of social programs on the farm.

Help support Kahumana’s long term vision and hope is to have the west-side be seen as a place of evolving local sustainability beyond organic farming that integrates the diverse communities that live here. Kahumana community is also taking an active role in this effort with other local organic farms in the region and hopefully 2016 will be a breakthrough year for all of us. Our goal for the evening is not only to share this beautiful organic farm and a wonderful meal but to generate a conversation for sustainability beyond organic farming and with the diverse communities on the west side.
Bring your shopping bags, as the Kahumana Market will be open where you can purchase fresh farm veggies and other value added products such as pesto, hummus, spicy cilantro sauce, dried herbs, and tea blends.
