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
Kaua‘i may be facing its greatest challenge yet, resulting from the COVID pandemic, the ensuing islandwideshutdowns, and the loss of thousands of jobs. Today, businesses are struggling to stay afloat in anticipation returning visitors. Many of our friends, neighbors, and family members are unemployed. Island families are hoping to return to a life of normalcy soon – to be able to go back to work and provide for their families.
Providing housing for local residents has been one of our longest-standing goals. Through many initiatives, Grove Farm is Kauaʻi’s largest private developer of affordable homes. We constructed camps for employees during the plantation era, and later, house and lot packages were developed for sale. We became the first plantation in the State to offer employees the ability to purchase their own homes in the late 1960s.
2020 has certainly tested our perseverance and the new year will continue to do so. When reflecting on the unprecedented 2020, we will remember the fears, struggles and unknowns that came with the worldwide pandemic. Yet – like Hurricane Iniki, floods, and other natural disasters that we overcame -- we saw the grit and resiliency in all of you. We are thankful for your friendships and partnerships.
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
