30 Bananas a Day!

Come spend some time with us and eat tropical fruit in the jungle....

Want to intern on an awesome organic fruit farm in tropical Hawaii?

We are accepting a limited number of interns during the December to March period at present. An internship is for a period of 6 weeks.

Our farm has a large greenhouse as well as over 400 fruit trees including bananas, avocados, jaboticaba, durian, oranges, jackfruit, papaya, star fruit, abiu, mammay sapote etc. to name some. The work exchange expectation is a minimum of 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. Our interns often want to work longer than just two hours and thats ok too!

As an intern you'll learn about growing and harvesting tropical fruit (our natural food), and greens in our greenhouse. Other farm activities include construction, maintenance of equipment, hacking the jungle with a machete, planting, weeding and mulching, etc.
We intend that Interns participate and learn about a variety of different aspects of organically caring for the land and trees, etc. We'll also have a bunch of fun!

As you'd expect in an 811 community we are tobacco, drug and alcohol free, we welcome interns who also live a clean lifestyle.

We are a low fat raw vegan community situated in the jungle of Puna on the Big Island. We welcome interns who are interested in participating in our LFRV lifestyle and are willing to consume only beautiful raw tropical fruits and vegetables in our community. It's the ideal 811 environment!

We will consider shorter guest stays also, where you can also participate in farm activities but are not required to if you don't wish to, please email with details of your requirements.

Accommodation is shared basic farm accommodation, some camping and a shared communal kitchen and showers. Wifi internet is available for a small weekly charge.

There are many fun outdoor things to do in your spare time like exploring Volcano National Park (can be reached by bicycle and a bus, hiking, surfing, swimming in lots of different fun places, snorkeling, camping etc.

We speak english and from time to time, some french.

We can be reached by bus from Hilo (1 1/2 hours bus ride) then either a half hour walk, or 10 min bike ride from the bus stop.

If interested in spending time with us as either an intern or as a guest please email for an application form.  barbc@ihug.co.nz

I'm interested in this opportunity. Is it still available?

This sounds really great. I sent an email. Please send me more info!

I'm so interested. I've been looking on helpx.net and wwoofing.org, but no one seems to fit as well as this. I want to be in Hawaii, eat fruit, live around like-minded individuals, and learn organic fruit-culture. :D I sent an email. Can't wait to fill out an app! :D

I sent the email. I look forward to your reply. :D

Did you get my email Mary Elizabeth?

I do believe this group (pasted below) was started for this opportunity, however I don't know if it is still available, but I just thought I would direct you guys to the group.

Will you still be taking on interns towards the end of this year? This sounds absolutely perfect!! Me and a friend are heading over about November time :) 

I sent an email. I didn't get one back?

Hi
I have just emailed you regarding the internship and just a normal stay with your family. I had an idea of doing that and never imagined there would be someone out there looking for interns on a 811 fruit farm;)
