30 Bananas a Day!

Sending out an invite to fruit loving folks interested in an internship on our organic farm in Hawaii...

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, but will be accepting applications for further ahead also now if thats your timeline. 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 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. Our interns often want to work longer than just four 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

seana.marche@gmail.com  -I am canadian and also want to know about the legal part of things.  This opportunity sounds amazing!

that offer sounds awesome! Would like to know if this is legal to work under these conditions in there for somebody who is not American. Anybody knows?

Hey! I will have to go to Hawaii for a week and am looking for an organic source of food for that time. My family is paying me a vacation for a week there but there are no vegan and there is no caring to avoid gmo. Any idea of what I could do to get trustable ''organic'' food source? I am not American so I can't work if I understand right. But if there is some kind of exchange beside money that I can provide and that is legal i'd love to do it.

This sounds perfect.  Do you have any need for interns over the summer?  My school is booked until midmay.  Thanks so much!

Damn I wish I could go, but I bet the flight would cost a fortune from the UK and I only get the last two weeks of December off from uni anyway ):

Comment by Tobias on October 19, 2012 at 12:37pm

Sounds awesome!
Can't right now. Is there a way to keep in touch on this if there's more  offers in the future?

Comment by Michael Angelo on October 19, 2012 at 12:26pm

Yes Please,

Is there a website we can visit?  Do you have contact information of other interns who have already done this?
