Spotted a flyer for the Hawaii Institute for Pacific Agriculture (HIP) Summer Internship while at the Conscious Culture Cafe in Hilo. Decided to jump at the opportunity and join last minute. Made my way up to North Kohala, where I will be spending the next four weeks living, learning, and working at HIP Ag’s farm in Kapaau. Excited for a structured, educational, community experience that will integrate many of my interests: organic agriculture, nutrition, herbal medicine, food preservation, as well as hawaiian tradition and culture (which I am now realizing is such a critical part of this study).
These guys are the real deal, check them out here!
