Aloha 'aina, malama' aina, ahupua'a
"Isn't it strange That princes and kings, And clowns that caper In sawdust rings, And common people Like you and me Are builders for eternity? Each is given a bag of tools, A shapeless mass, A book of rules; And each must make - Ere life is flown- A stumbling block Or a steppingstone.
"~R.L Sharpe, A Bag of Tools, circa 1809.
Farley Ohana Volcano Retreat is situated in Ohia estates. Part of a ancient rain forest. One unique part of this region is the Ohia lehua trees (Metrosideros polymorpha), especially the big old gnarled trees that have withstood the test of time. Ohia are slow-growing trees. It takes 400-500 years for them to reach 6 feet in diameter. Trees of this age have lived through huricanes, earthquakes, and other natural calamities. Their burls, twists, and scars stand testiment to the fact that they are survivors.
