NaloPonics

 

Both founders are of native Hawaiian ancestry and share a common interest in the Hawaiian culture, preservation of our ‘aina (land) and conservation of our resources.


David, a long-time koi hobbyist, who started with ornamental fish ponds, but then began looking for a more productive system that promoted conservation.  His creativity and construction background make an awesome combination when building aquaponics systems!


Lei is a Native Hawaiian Health practitioner and compassionate teacher with a natural gift for aiding the healing process.  She is a lomilomi practitioner and a haumana (student) of la’au lapa’au mea kanu (healing plants) at UH Manoa.  As a life-long learner she continues studying Hawaiian culture and arts, as well as community and social services, at UH Manoa.  She currently assists in maintaining the aquaponics systems at Windward Community College for the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources and is a regular presenter on the topics of aquaponics and Hawaiian Healing Arts.
