Ahiki Acre’s mission is to increase Oahu’s food security by growing healthy, tasty products, while practicing responsible stewardship of the land. On our ¼ acre, we grow a diverse mix of crops to supply our CSA with a variety of vegetables. Some of our crops include leafy greens, herbs, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and roots. Due to new demand from COVID-19 and our desire to continue to nourish our community and maintain efficient operations we plan to use the grant funding to build a new wash station and a solar trailer. By incorporating solar power, the system will allow us to operate in the field and wash more produce at a faster rate, conserving energy, water and labor time.
