You will get out of this experience what you put in, I had an amazing time on Molokai and I could confidently say there would be very few volunteer positions in Hawaii that could compare to this one in regards to experiencing true Hawaii, and living with nature. If you understand that you will be living rustic and willing to give up some comforts I guarantee you will have a once in a lifetime experience. Molokai is not a mind blowing island like Oahu or Maui but it is still full of spectacular surprises. Bret is a real solid dude, hard working and fun. Quiet, friendly, natural, this is Molokai

Happiness starts from within and takes one on to higher levels of gratitude and fun experiences! Right on Stephen! Molokai is such a special and unique island, its really the only Hawaiian which has said ''No to over development corporate greed and exploitation''. Molokai has held its value of staying pristine with nature being its true authority. It holds many off the beaten sites, mystical valleys, and beaches. Some majestic sites are so breathtaking that they can rival any destination in the world !!!
I do see all the hard work Brett put in and I do admire his efforts, yet some things he said and did I found to be not so awesome. I had very open conversations with him throughout my stay, about what concerned me, and I doubt his character is going to change.

Nicolas is correct , I have a very strong work ethic and believe passionately about sustainability and living with a real respect for nature. Sadly Nicolas is suffering from an intense alcoholism and substances abuse issues, only so much advice can be given to an individual which daily gets as sloppy drunk as possible within 5 minutes of ending work. I truly hope he gets the help his hurt inner child needs. I encourage volunteers to have fun , being centered around personal grow and spiritual well being. Peace
I loved staying at this farm at Molokai island. The place is very peaceful and beautiful. Very intense connection with nature. It’s awesome see all the plants growing. Bret is very kind and welcoming :)
