I am a student interested in the Kahumana Organic Farm conference & accommodation package. Is a student rate available for this package?

  • Unfortunately, there is not an option to unbundle this packaged rate. Revenues generated from the higher-priced conference & accommodation packages are helping to subsidize the discounted conference & accommodation packages that help us ensure access for all socioeconomic levels to participate in the conference.
  • The alternative site, Camp Pālehua is an incredible location rich in cultural history and offers stunning views, comfortable (rustic) accommodations, and delicious food that we highly recommend.
