Ka Maha ʻUlu o Koholālele, literally translated as "the breadfruit grove of Koholālele," is a community-led food system project transforming approximately 80 acres of former sugar plantation and current eucalyptus plantation lands in Koholālele, Hāmākua, Hawaiʻi, into Hawaiʻi’s largest regenerative ʻulu (breadfruit) agroforestry system. In alignment with huiMAU’s mission to reestablish the systems that sustain our community, after nearly four generations of industrial monocrop agriculture degrading our native eco- and food-systems, this project seeks to address current and future needs of our rural Hawaiʻi community to restore ecosystem health, increase food sovereignty and climate change resiliency, and promote responsible community-led economic development.
