This is an immersion for you to enjoy and embrace an authentic Hawaiian farm experience, created especially for the Wanderlust Ohana. Off the beaten path of Oahu and into the back roads of Waimanalo, you will enjoy a full day under the majestic Koolau mountain range on a small organic farm operated by Wanderlust Yoga teacher & musician, Kelly Stern and Paul Izak.

Together you will adventure along the beautiful coastal east side of Oahu to Waimanalo. Tucked in the back of the valley, you will arrive at Yogarden Farm. Yogarden is a local company who's mission is to educate the community in the importance of growing your own food and living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, through the principles of yoga philosophy and organic farming techniques.

Our farm experience will begin with a refreshing herbal farm beverage to welcome you all to the farm. From there, we will enjoy a walking farm tour exploring tropical fruit trees, organic gardens, a young vanilla orchard, native plants, an operating compost system, root crops, and more. The tour will come to a close in our grassy field, where Kelly Stern will lead us through an outdoor farm yoga flow with live music by Paul Izak & friends.

The Farm-to-Table offering by Yogarden Farm is a must! Following the farm tour and yoga class, we will enjoy a beautiful farm-to-table style lunch. The lunch will be inspired by what is in season and growing abundantly at that time. The meal will be plant-based, gluten free, organic, and delicious… guaranteed.

As lunch is coming to a close, we will offer an educational workshop to 'talk story' about the land, the ancient medicinal foods of Hawaii and our kuleana (responsibility) as humans in this time.

Mālama ka ʻĀina. It is time to give back to the land, to take care of our home. This is your time to give back, to be a karma yogi and offer your loving hands and service to the land of Hawaii. Multiple jobs will be offered at this time to suit anyone's ability. From planting seeds, harvesting olena (turmeric root), to pushing wheel barrels, this is the time for us to connect to the rich Hawaiian soil and share your love.

A full farm day will come to an end with a small farm snack for the bus ride back to turtle bay and an opportunity to take some farm goodies home with you.

We hope you join us for this magical experience together.
Class time devoted to lecture: 11-20 minutes
