Ohia Ridge Farm

What We Do

We are dedicated to diversifying the existing native montane forest and preserving habitat for rare plants and endangered birds. Your volunteer work supports biodiversity of the native forest, helps preserve endangered bird habitat and helps develop a seed bank for the future expansion of Hawaiʻi’s native forest. We host volunteers on weekends August through May and weekdays June 1 through July 31. Opportunities include:  potting seedlings, planting trees and shrubs, weeding and watering. We begin at 8 a.m. and end at noon. Lunch is provided. Please bring a hat/sunscreen, rain gear-if needed, sensible shoes and a water bottle. We provide water, gloves, and equipment. Thank you for your support.


Who We Are

Ohia Ridge Farm is a 41-acre sustainable agricultural property at a 3300’ elevation on the slopes of Mauna Kea, located just below historic ʻUmikoa Village and adjacent to the Hāmākua Forest Reserve on the island of Hawaiʻi. We grow native Hawaiian plants and outplant them into our forest to re-establish native forest cover for endemic and indigenous bird species habitat, Find more about us on our website: OhiaRidgeFarm.com
