This past March, a group of Down to Earth Team Members (including myself) dedicated some time to volunteering at Green Rows Farm, a special place nestled under the Ko’olaus in beautiful Waimanalo, Oahu. The farm is managed and cared for by Sean Anderson and a group of young farmers all dedicated to regenerative practices, excited by Oahu’s local food movement, and enthusiastic about getting dirty, having fun, and growing delicious food. Every Wednesday Green Rows Farm invites the public to help out on their farm. Check out their website for more information at  www.thegreenrows.com

I was in awe the whole time I was at the farm. I couldn’t stop staring at the mountains, and ate so many carrots that I’m surprised I’m not orange. Everyone who was working on the farm was so passionate about farming and shared many of the techniques they use. Our team spent the day pulling weeds and having fun! Despite being muddy and getting attacked by mosquitoes, everyone was smiling the whole time. It was a great day giving back to our community and meeting new people!
