Big Island, Hawaii has five volcanoes (Mauna Kea, Kohala, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, and Kilauea-currently active); the youngest of the island chain, and because of the volcanic activity, we have 7 climate zones: snow, desert, rain forest, temperate forest etc… Class is held on the dry but windier side of the island. Rain is not uncommon at night in some parts of the island; and if you are staying in higher elevation, temperatures can drop to around 40 degrees in some parts of the island. Temperatures during the day range between 65-80 degrees Farenheit each day, depending upon where you are; if you intend on exploring other parts of the island, pack accordingly. Our class will have a daily temperature of about 75 degrees farenheit.
CLASS DATES: January 18- February 5. 5 days on, Mondays and Tuesdays Off. Class begins at 830 AM Each morning and will run to 2 PM each afternoon.
The last day of class, Feb 5 class will end earlier , should students need to travel to the airport.
Class will be held in our outdoor- fully crowd funded class room in our organic macadamia nut orchard as well as inside in the main cottage house. We are located at 1600' in elevation, and class is during our winter season, so please bring layers, as the weather is known to change suddenly. Rain gear as well as long sleeves are encouraged during the morning hours; shorts and short-sleeved, during mid-morning to rest of the day. Socks and blankets will be provided.

Travel: Book flights to Kailua- Kona, Big Island Hawai’i (Airport code: KOA). You may also fly into Hilo; however, be aware that Hilo is about 2.5 hours from the class location.
Hawi is approximately 45 min-1 hour north of Kailua-Kona Airport on Highway. We recommend that you book your flights to arrive at least one day before the beginning of class in order to adjust to the climate and time-change.
We recommend that you rent a car while on the island, as travel to class will require a car or carpool. We are happy to coordinate carpooling between students; should any student wish to carpool, please let us know, and we can connect you.
Should you wish to travel by bus to Hawi, Hele-on is the cross-island bus service; however be aware that the Big Island is about 80% the size of Connecticut, with far less public transport. Please plan accordingly.
We have blocked out some lovely rooms at a local Bed & Breakfast on the dry side of Waimea. To learn more, contact Amy J. directly.
We also recommend that you stay in Northern Kohala: in Hawi Town or Kapa-au, the next town over, near the beautiful Pololu Valley. Class is scheduled specifically for the low tourist season, and there are great deals available for students wishing to stay in a hotel or rent a room or house. We recommend: www.airbnb.com .
