Hanakēhau Learning Farm

Hanakēhau Learning Farm is named for the historic place name of our ‘ili ‘āina. Hanakēhau is located within the moku of ‘Ewa and the ahupua’a of Waiawa, situated between the adjacent ahupua’a of Waipi’o and Manana. The community of Waiawa ma kai includes Kuhialoko and Kuhiawaho, two land stewards committed and dedicated to restoring the waiwai of this historically abundant land area.

Hanakēhau is the home base for Ko’ihonua and serves as our kahua, our land base and foundation for the work we do.

Directions to Hanakēhau:

  • Coming over the Waiawa Road bridge to Leeward Community College, turn left at the intersection in front of the College Gardens townhouses (a right takes you to LCC). You can Google Map “College Gardens” and it will get you close.
  • The road will curve around the townhouses and end at a cul-de-sac.
  • From the cul-de-sac, turn right onto a single lane road, the back of the town houses will be on your right side and there will be houses on your left.
  • After the last house, the road turns left and goes down under a monkeypod tree, you will see an a Hanakēhau sign on the tree and a sign on your right that says Kuhialoko. Stay to the left of the tan office trailer and continue on down the dirt road past a bright yellow gate that will be open. We are the next driveway on the left after the yellow gate.
