ABOUT Kukui‘ula, OLA HONUA & WHISPERING WINDS BAMBOO
Originally owned by the Hecht family who spent more than a decade converting the land that had been degraded by cattle grazing and cane cultivation into a sustainable working farm featuring intensive reforestation with native species and other hardwood and bamboo crops.
Situated in the ahupua‘a of Kukui‘ula (translating to red light) in the beautiful and remote area of Kīpahulu, these "Happy Farmers" work cooperatively to provide fresh agricultural produce, along with beautiful quality bamboo for the community of Maui.
Various types of bamboo, teak, and other hardwoods, along with some native plants such as koa and kukui are found in this secluded wahi pana. Click here to learn more about Whispering Winds Bamboo or listen to the whispering winds of the bamboo found there.
