The Maui Community Organic Farmland Initiative is about offering new opportunities to large numbers of small, local farmers to become the seeds of a new economic, ecological, and agricultural infrastructure.

THE PURPOSE of this proposed law is to establish the mechanism by which Maui residents may petition the County Council to convert agricultural lands owned by the largest landholders into public agricultural parks that exclusively use organic and regenerative agricultural practices.

THIS LAW gives us the ability to invoke the power of “eminent domain” to buy the sugarcane lands at fair market value and convert them into one of the world’s largest diversified organic farms, which will provide jobs, healthy food, and food self-sufficiency for Maui.

The Future of the Sugar Plantation is in Our Hands!


Come be part of launching this new Voters Initiative Law. Join your fellow citizens in activating your constitutional right to invoke the process of converting the sugarcane plantation from corporate to public ownership.

Through the special purpose revenue bond system, these lands can be purchased by the community, at fair market value, costing the government and the people nothing.

These new publicly-owned Community Organic Farmlands will create more jobs and a thriving local economy. These lands will be dedicated to diversified regenerative agriculture to protect the Aina, feed the people of Maui and Hawaii, and achieve food security.

Malama aina, healthy land, healthy people.  Together we can create a bright and healthy future for Maui!
