Born and raised in San Francisco's Mission District, Ana Castillo moved to Hawai'i island over twenty years ago. Despite her love for the art and music the city could offer, she yearned for a more intentional, slower life. Together with her husband Luis, they realized a shared dream to homestead on an organic farm. They now live in an upcycled, rustic home they designed and built on seven acres in rural Kealakekua bay. . .

Above the bustle of town, Ashley Judith Flemino lives with her two daughters in a yurt home on a coffee farm on Hawaii's island.  Originally from Minnesota, Ashley arrived to Oahu's North Shore in her early 20s for an adventure and eventually found her way to the wide open spaces of  the Big Island. The simple living and easy connection to nature she found on island suit her. . . .
