Our Vision


Planting for the Future
by Rosalind Cook

"Planting for the Future reflects our overall vision for Na ‘Āina Kai," recalled founder Joyce Doty. "Placed in the Wild Garden along the path beside the Plantation, this sculpture by Rosalind Cook is a promise for the future and a tribute to the young men who helped us plant 60,000 trees."

The founders of Na ‘Āina Kai developed their extraordinary artistic and horticultural vision based upon their strong love for the land and the people of the tropics.

Today, the mission of this not-for-profit organization continues to be multifaceted, strengthening the firm foundation upon which the gardens were conceived.

Na ‘Āina Kai strives to…

  • Ensure its future sustainability through investment in forestry.

  • Practice natural resource conservation based on sound scientific principles.

  • Make possible educational and research opportunities in tropical horticulture, forestry, and agriculture.

  • Offer enchanting venues for private, corporate, and cultural events.

  • Provide an ever-evolving array of natural wonders and human-crafted artistic creations.

  • Preserve the land and natural resources for future generations of visitors from the Hawaiian Islands and around the world.
