ALOHA ʻĀINA HEALTH CENTER
Aloha ‘Āina Health and Learning Center and the Luluku Farmers’ Association help to build healthy communities through holistic nutrition and healthy lifestyle programs. Aloha ‘Āina Health Center seeks to accomplish its mission by fostering community participation in traditional Hawaiian sustainable farming, preparing traditional Hawaiian foods, learning and teaching the healing power of a traditional Hawaiian diet with an emphasis on community food security for the health & welfare of Hawaii’s current and future generations.
In partnership with ʻĀina Momona and OHA, Hālawa-Luluku Interpretive Development Project (HLID) was created to help mitigate some of the adverse impacts resulting from the construction of the Interstate H-3 Highway. HLID helped facilitate community collaboration on an Interpretive Development Plan (IDP) and continues with the development of Stewardship Management Plans and implementation of select mitigation actions determined in consultation with the selected Stewards of each project area. ‘Āina Momona helped create the Luluku Stewardship Management Plan and serves as kāko‘o to the cultural practitioners leading this effort.
