Collaboratively advancing sustainable practices for farmers, ranchers and landowners through education, stewardship, and partnerships.
What We Do
We support a number of programs and projects that serve to build awareness and opportunity to implement sustainable practices in land management including but not limited to:
- Together We Farm (a farmer, rancher, and landowner development program)
- Grant writing support and fund development support
- Manage West Oahu SWCD Cooperator meetings; serve as the liaison and main point of contact.
In addition, we believe in the power of critical thinking and informed decision making to build a better world. To advance this belief, OACA serves as the State Co-Coordinators for Project Learning Tree: A program that uses the environment as a platform for teaching "how to think not what to think" about complex issues facing our society.
