Subject: Permaculture land in Hawaii

             I steward 243 acres of virgin old-growth native rainforest on
the Big Island of Hawaii, which I believe would be an excellent situation
for a Permaculture farm, land trust, and/or co- housing site.  I have
stewarded land for 47 years, and planted tens of thousands of trees, in
areas as diverse as Oregon, Tennessee, Alabama, Hawaii and Costa Rica.  As
I approach my 70th birthday, it is my desire that this land in Hawaii go
to some individuals or groups who would use it wisely.

             On a photo of Hawaii Island the size of the palm of my
hand, I can pick out the corners of my land; it's that unique.
Bordering thousands of acres of state forest, there are five lots ranging
from 20 acres to 87 acres.  One of the five parcels has an overgrown
30-acre macadamia nut orchard that was planted in the 1960's.  The orchard
is not commercially viable, but the orchard land would be suitable for
trees, crops and housing. At around 1,100 ft elevation, it has abundant
rainfall, and some ocean views.  Because most of this land has never been
cultivated, it is untarnished, and
does not have the toxic residue found on former sugar cane land.
Although it is primarily old-growth ohia forest, areas exist for orchards,
gardens, housing, and workshops, without disturbing the forested lands.

             If you know any individual or group who would be interested
in purchasing this land, please forward my contact information.  Thank you
for your attention.
