Wai Moku is a restoration project in Waihee Maui on a 25 acre property owned by Joshua. In 2011 an effort was started to replace several acres of invasive trees with native trees and plants, and to restore ancient lo’i kalo. Traditional Hawaiian hale were built to host a location for outdoor education, land restoration, agriculture, stream life, and Hawaiian Culture. The Maui Hawaiian Village was a partner company that brought educational and eco-tourism groups to the property to experience the restoration work being done. Joshua works with different community groups and partnerships with the vision to restore an Ahupua’a from the mountain to the ocean.
Hōkū Nui is a 258 acre property in Upcountry Maui that is being developed into a regenerative farming community. Joshua handled the acquisition of the property in 2012, and assisted in managing the project from the beginning integrating regenerative farming practices, native reforestation, Hawaiian culture, entitlements, infrastructure engineering, private water system, renewable energy systems, permitting, residential construction, and building community relationships.
Construction & Development
Joshua got his Real Estate license at the age of 18 to start investing in his own properties. Growing up in construction with his father and brothers who are local builders, he combined this experience with Real Estate to buy his first properties starting at age 19. He went on to do several remodels, new construction, and subdivisions of his own.
