Regeneration, from the soil to the people.
Our 20 acre ecological center in Hawaii is a visionary campus for transformational learning,
intergenerational village building, and regenerative agriculture. One Village Project farm is a refuge for self inquiry, natural living, and personal growth . It is a place that practices devotion to community healing, conflict resolution, and cultural exchange. A campus for small enterprise and transformational education that is immersed in a landscape of life-giving, soul-nourishing beauty.
Year round, OVP is a thriving regenerative farm, outdoor campus, and model of engagement. We plant not only vegetables, but seeds of education, food sovereignty, and cultural resilience. Daily, healthy food is shared, space is lent for community enterprises, knowledge is spread through engagement, and innovative plantings are supporting a thriving ecosystem. OVP is a place of refuge for communities to heal differences so that we can respond in harmony to climate instability and human injustices.
One Village Project farm is more than a place, it’s a way of being. It's a wildly alive and experiential place that gathers diverse people together in devotion to being human in a new way. It’s an opportunity for humanity to realign as part of the ecosystem and to acknowledge that our communities need daily tending to in the same way we tend to the gardens. This land this supports new generations of activated land stewards with simple, local, and appropriate land relations.

Our Commitment: We recognize the blessing and responsibility of caring for this particular 'aina (land) on the sacred island that is the Kingdom of Hawai'i. We bow in honor with awareness and respect for the many generations of Hawaiian families that have farmed this land before us and left a legacy of sacred stewardship, spiritual & cultural wisdom, and agricultural practices. It is our prayer to continue in a sacred relationship with the land and to seek guidance and wisdom from our community of elders, teachers and mentors. May we stay reverent and reminded that many of us are visitors in their ancestral home.
