Hui Aloha ‘Aina Momona is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded in 2011. We are family-driven, community-driven and culture-driven. Our goal is to restore ‘āina momona (abundant land) in Hawai‘i using the core principles of sustainability and cultural perpetuation. We do this by educating and engaging individuals, families, businesses and community organizations as active stewards of the land and its resources and strengthening traditional practices based on agriculture and food.

Hui Aloha ‘Aina Momona conducts a large number of educational and cultural activities for residents and visitors alike, as well as promoting the sale and consumption of traditional kalo food products like hand-pounded poi or pa‘i ‘ai. From board and stone-making workshops to our Haloa Challenge workshops in local schools and community organizations, to demonstrating and appreciating the great nutritional and culinary values of kalo, we are reviving our relationship to the land and its abundance for the generations to come.
