We sent funds by wire transfer yesterday for the new farm acreage in Puna. Dreams are large, plans are in process, and the timeline just took a huge leap into reality. We will eventually build `Ihilani Farms from scratch in what I like to call "Pele's Garden..." untouched bare land. Crop plans include coffee (of course!), aquaponics, avocados, bananas, and perhaps tea. We will build our own power plant with solar and wind energy to live and farm completely off the grid as well as build a home, water catchment system, animal and worker housing. It seems timing is right for another new adventure...a blog!
