Building a Sustainable Kauaʻi
Leveraging strategic partnerships and utilizing leading technology to strengthen the Kaua'i community's self sufficiency and sustainability.Sustainability
Our land management approach supports the preservation of historic sites and enhancing the many plants, birds, and other endangered species. Partnering with key businessess and organizations to support the needs of our island community is one of many ways Grove Farm is working to build a more sustainable Kauai.
Our culture is passed down from the generations before us as we learn from talking-story with our elders. Grove Farm wants to preserve this culture by documenting the food, music, and history that make us Kaua'i.Sustainable Culture
The Grove Farm Foundation has been giving back to the Kaua’i community in numerous ways. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Grove Farm Foundation is focused on building communities through supporting educational enrichment opportunities; promoting employee volunteerism; enhancing and protecting the environment; assisting health and human service projects; and creating economic opportunities for Kaua’i’s sustainable future.Grove Farm Foundation
The Waiahi Surface Water Treatment Plant (Waiahi SWTP) provides safe drinking water to over 15,000 Kaua‘i residents and visitors, roughly 20% of the island. The only surface water treatment facility on the island resulted from a partnership between Grove Farm and the Department of Water (DOW), County of Kaua’i. Grove Farm built and paid for the facility, processes the water from the Kapaia Reservoir, and provides the DOW with drinking water.
Since the coronavirus hit our island in early spring, our team at Grove Farm came up with many ideas “to build a community” – or Kūkulu Kaiāulu. A number of initiatives arose from Kūkulu Kaiāulu, including our latest one, appropriately named “Community Wins! Program.”
Three students who demonstrate excellence in community service, academic accomplishments, and quality of character are selected to receive a scholarship valued at $20,000. Since the program was founded, Grove Farm has committed $660,000 in scholarships for Kauaʻi students.
