We have been holding educational/experiential conferences since 2001 on Body and Soil health and have actively been involved in supporting our small organic and transitioning conventional family farmers in their practice to honor their body’s well being and the soils vitality as a living organism while producing nutrient rich food for the community.


Presentations articulated in a story form to easily understand how natural systems of regenerative agriculture and holistic health work in concert with
one another supporting our well being.

This years event will be April 11,12,13 Thurs,Friday and Saturday at the Tropical Plantation in Waikapu Maui. Where Kumu Farm is located and is Certified Organic. The presenters at our conferences are leaders and experts in the field of eco-logical land and holistic body care.

It is the intention of Ma‘a to hold these experiential events and bring together folks who value what it means to grow and eat nutrient dense foods, while fostering biological diversity in their gardens and farms.
