Sustainable Culture

Perpetuating History

Kauaʻi is the true embodiment of aloha. It’s the people that grew up here carry that spirit with them wherever they go. 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 Kauaʻi.
