Gentle World Community was founded in 1970 and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization in 1979. Their centers provide information about and demonstrations on modern sustainable living practices and the reasons for and how to go about becoming vegan.
Gentle World’s U.S. location is in Hawai’i. The gardens are fully veganic and are used to teach visitors about the principles of vegan organic gardening. The food grown in the gardens is also used to help feed the community members, volunteers and visitors. The garden produces bananas, papayas, a variety of edible greens and herbs, carrots and beets, cucumbers, zucchini, corn, tomatoes, squash and more.
Gentle World welcomes help in developing their projects in either location, whether through talents, skills, or resources. They accept WWOOFers (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) through an application process found here. They are also open to visitors if contacted in advance.
