Ready, Set, Grow!

Ready, Set, Grow!


Each plot is 500 square feet.

Gardeners will be chosen by lottery from the Turtle Bay Resort employees and Kahuku Residents, and those selected will be expected to provide their own tools and seeds for their plot.

There will be a small fee associated with the maintenance of the gardens. Upon receiving their plot, gardeners will be asked to pay a one-time fee of $50.00, with a small recurring fee of $10.00 per month along with a $20 refundable security deposit.

The plots will open to the gardeners with a special blessing ceremony in August 2019. Gardeners can expect secure access to their plots as well as workshops and other learning opportunities associated with growing, harvesting and caring for their plot’s bounty.


The Turtle Bay Mauka Land Community Gardens is owned and operated by Turtle Bay Resort and managed by Hawai‘i-based agricultural stewardship company Pono Pacific. The continued use of the land depends on the ability of gardeners to keep it well maintained. Pono Pacific requires all gardeners to read and abide by the following rules and guidelines to ensure the growth of the gardening community as well as the continuation of individual plot access.
