Ulu Mau Puanui
Ulu Mau Puanui is a non-profit 501c3 organization formed for research and educational purposes to discover and understand how Hawaiians sustained rain-fed (unirrigated) intensive farming for centuries; and how it may inform our current efforts to live sustainably.
Ulu Mau Puanui manages the gardens at Puanui, provides educational programs and collaborates with various educational and cultural organizations that provide learning opportunities for students, teachers, families and community.
Puanui is one of the thirty-three ahupua'a in leeward Kohala that make up the Kohala Field System. The ahupua'a of Puanui is owned by Kamehameha Schools. Ulu Mau Puanui works in partnership with Kamehameha Schools to perpetuate Hawaii's culture through land-based education and culturally-driven science.
