Waimānalo Learning Center

 

The College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) Waimānalo Research Station was established in 1955  The 128 acre piece of land located in Waimānalo was established to promote diversified agriculture. For over 60 years the station has worked closely with local growers in the ahupua'a and across the state to disseminate science-based information to help solve problems facing producers. Initiated in 2012, CTAHRs Waimānalo Learning Center (WLC) has welcomed thousands of community members to the station each year to improve awareness of the stations research activities, support 'aina-based education of our Keiki and their 'ohana. Current research and other activities include breeding and selecting food crops for sustainable local production, apiculture (Bee Program), bioenergy crops, certified organic agriculture, aquaponics and beginner farmer training.
