For many years, Gentle World volunteers have been searching for the ideal location for the expansion of our vegan educational program in Hawaii. During this time, we have been limited by our two acres of space, even as the number of visitors seeking to participate in our program increases year by year.
Now, we are elated to announce that thanks to a generous loan from an anonymous vegan benefactor, Gentle World is the proud owner of 34 acres of magnificent countryside, in the foothills of the Kohala Mountain on the Big Island of Hawaii.
This extraordinary land has stunning mountain and ocean views, a temperate climate all year round, the deepest soil in the state, and enough room, water, sunshine and just the right elevation to grow everything from coconuts to soybeans.
Here is where we will realize our vision of VeganLand: an oasis of peace for the vegan in everyone, in the international hub that is Hawaii.
There is an outstanding 88-acre piece situated across from our 34 acres. This exquisite expanse of land would be the perfect place for a nature reserve, an animal sanctuary, a retreat center, or the home for a collective of vegan land-owners.
Sadly, this parcel is facing development by its owner corporation, which intends to strip the land of all its trees, before subdividing. As they are currently poised to begin this process, time is of the essence, so please contact us if you have interest in more information or if you know other vegans who might have the desire and means to be a part of acquiring this $1.5 million haven. (Please note that it is able to be subdivided into four separate parcels of 22 acres each.)
Since several other parcels on the same road will be on the market within the next year or so, our vision is for all the land surrounding our 34-acre VeganLand to eventually be owned by vegans, creating a totally vegan reality and the first of its kind on Planet Earth, in which no animal (human or otherwise) need be afraid of the violence and cruelty of any other.
Wouldn’t that be something?
Thank you, as always, for your support. We look forward to sharing the news of our progress with you all!
