O’ahu Resource Conservation & Development Council

The O’ahu Resource Conservation & Development Council is an independent non-profit entity that works to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. While our mission and mandate are broad, recent work has focused on assisting rural enterprises and farmers, while fostering education and adoption of sound conservation practices on rural lands. Several current projects engage farmers in imperiled watersheds, supporting their efforts to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, increase productivity of the land through the use of regenerative farming and ranching practices, and rehabilitate ecological services and habitat through the restoration of native species. We have provided training, fiscal sponsorship support, and a network to cultivate the growth of rural businesses, particularly focusing on those owned and operated by women.
