“We're taking a deep dive into our sustainable future. As we penetrate the surface of the soil, we meet with festering wounds from many years of agricultural practices that violate nature-and our own nature. Can we ignore this pain and still move towards sustainability? Can we compost this pain into passion for pono practices? 
 Yes we can! As we compost our pain, we're also composting the industrial delusion that humans are separate from nature and she exists for us to commodify. The rich, dark soil being created by our composting is strengthening us to revere nature as our teacher, healer and highest self." 
-Astronomer Harriet Witt 

 What do we mean by "aspiring zero-waste educational facility"? We aspire to set a positive example for those around us by taking accountability over our actions as consumers. At the Lā Kāhea, we take recycling one step further by creating conversation around innovative ways to reduce our waste stream as consumers. Our agricultural facility is inspired by Earthship designs and building techniques.
