Tracy Matfin and coauthor Dona Willoughby live, learn, teach, and grow at Laâ€™akea Community, currently comprised of nine adults and two children on 23 acres on Hawaiiâ€™s Big Island (permaculture-hawaii.com). Articles by Tracy Matfin include: Doing It, or Are We? (Issue # 153)

At La’akea, members’ various approaches to food reflect the quest for emotional as well as physical sustainability.
