KKV sees the ‘aina as a vital member of the community, and so we are pleased to offer opportunities for community gardening, reforestation, environmental education and the preservation of land-based cultural knowledge at Ho`oulu `Aina (the Kalihi Valley Nature Preserve). In this “welcoming place of refuge for people of all cultures,” healing the land heals us as well. Ho’oulu ‘Aina is flourishing under the enthusiasm and hard work of its staff and hundreds of community volunteers. As the land is restored to health and productivity, the healing is reciprocal, creating a healthy, resilient Kalihi Valley community.
