Mastering Kratom Farming: A Pilot Project for Sustainable Cultivation and Harvesting
Learn about our programs and how you can participate
Kumuola Pilot Program
The purpose of the pilot program is to determine if plants that are in high demand in the US, and indigineous to the warm Pacific, can be successfully grown in the Hawaiian islands. The pilot program’s team includes academic researcher advisors in pharmacology, horticulture & agriculture from respected institutions.
The project is an agricultural program designed to provide a path for Native Hawaiians to gain employment, qualify for Hawaiian Homelands, and generate income from farm ownership. The program will provide jobs, financial resources and assistance on the best methods of farming. Native Hawaiians enrolled in the program will work towards developing their land to cultivate unique crops indigenous to the warm Pacific. Income from the harvest will provide a foundation to securing loans to construct homes on their own land.
Kumuola Research Programs
The project will have a focus on pharmacology research as a prerequisite for preclinical trials. We are focused on using plants that have natural, medicinal benefits. The research is set to begin spring 2022.
