Working to Build a Sustainable Kaua'i
Leveraging strategic partnerships and utilizing leading technology to strengthen the Kaua'i community's self sufficiency and sustainability.Sustainability
Our Sustainable Culture section captures songs or mele, recipes and stories or mo’olelo from our diverse backgrounds and ethnicities that have been passed down for generations. We want to document and preserve our rich island history that make us Kaua‘i.
Chances are, when you're driving around Kaua‘i, you will notice a bunch of albizia trees -- Falcataria Moluccana -- towering over vegetation on the sides of roads. While beautiful and stately, albizia is one of the most destructive and invasive species in Hawai‘i.
The Waiahi Surface Water Treatment Plant (Waiahi SWTP) provides safe drinking water to over 15,000 Kaua‘i residents and visitors, roughly 20% of the island. The only surface water treatment facility on the island resulted from a partnership between Grove Farm and the Department of Water (DOW), County of Kaua’i. Grove Farm built and paid for the facility, processes the water from the Kapaia Reservoir, and provides the DOW with drinking water.
The Grove Farm Foundation has been giving back to the Kaua’i community in numerous ways. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Grove Farm Foundation is focused on building communities through supporting educational enrichment opportunities; promoting employee volunteerism; enhancing and protecting the environment; assisting health and human service projects; and creating economic opportunities for Kaua’i’s sustainable future.Grove Farm Foundation
Our land management approach supports the preservation of historic sites and enhancing the many plants, birds, and other endangered species. Partnering with key businessess and organizations to support the needs of our island community is one of many ways Grove Farm is working to build a more sustainable Kauai.Building Communities
