Getting Here
If you’re coming from the mainland, fly into HILO- we are 30 minutes from the airport. You can rent a car or we can send a pick-up for you. If you’re local, we’re in the Kaimu Homesteads above Kalapana in Lower Puna, next to Garden Temple.

Where to stay
If you’re looking for a low budget option, you can camp or stay in the dorm. We have cabins and rooms in the house available, too. Neighbors also have AirBnBs and space to land. Staying in our AirBnB is $25 to $75 a night depending on room/bed type.

We’ll have vegan food at lunch and dinner to nourish and heal, provided by local professional kitchens.

Donations and volunteer support help make this time out of time happen. We would like you to offer an hour a day to some aspect of helping out and being in community.

Kids and furbabies are welcome.
