Since 2001 our educational events (visit History of MA‘A) have informed and inspired!
Our Mission: To promote life nurturing practices for Body & Soil through education and outreach.
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.

Our conferences have been on an Organic farm outdoors under a big top tent. Our next event in January 14,15,16, 2011 is up at Kumulani Organic Vegetable Farm in Olinda.The presenters at our conferences are leaders in the field of eco-logical land and holistic body care. The outdoor ambiance carries over into their presentations. Our experts do a great job of weaving their presentations as a magical story of connecting the dots of how nature works to support us and our well being.
|Along with the main conference area, there is an organic food tent, supplying “ono local grinds” throughout the day. Conference attendees will be fed a diverse local meal at lunch like no other experienced at a conference. Attendees will have many opportunities to network with one another, cruise our extensive trade show, while feasting on nutrient dense local organic foods.|
|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.|
We welcome the creative minds and spirits, of all who wish to share their gifts of knowledge and experience. What makes up the spirit of Ma’a is acknowledging the relationship of the body to the soil, in our being well.
