At the Hub, you might have heard our motto of “Do well, do good”. This saying stems from our mission to foster the success of our members. The second part, “do good” goes a little beyond the traditional business idea of cultivating a community of working professionals. “Do good” comes from the need to feed the soul, to gain a sense of belonging and purpose, to build community with those around us.
To put actions to our words, we host work days where our coworking members are invited to get out of the office, and give back to the ‘aina (land). We’ve hosted work days out at the Kōkua Learning Farm with our friends at Kōkua Hawai‘i Foundation, and community cleanups with the Surfrider Foundation O‘ahu Chapter, as a way to provide our members the opportunity to network outside of their immediate circles, visit places they might not have seen before, and of course to help our surrounding community.
Most recently, we visited Keiki and Plow– a family run, organic farm in Hawaii Kai that offers families a hands-on farm experience. On Saturday, November 6, 2021. The team at Keiki & Plow hosted about 25 Hub Coworking members and friends.
Our members volunteered to help with various projects on the farm such as transferring soil to plant beds, planting herbs and flowers, clearing pathways, pulling crops of weeds and spreading mulch around crops.
We were all split into separate groups to complete our tasks, and Hub members with keiki helped to plant flowers and vegetables in the garden. It was a fun-filled day, and it was so nice to see some of our members out in the open again. Mahalo to the members that were able to make it–we hope to host another work day sometime soon!
