GoLeanSixSigma.com Helps Foster Healthy Communities in Hawaii With Mohala Farms - GoLeanSixSigma.com

For the month of June (2016), our Team gave back to our community by volunteering at Mohala Farms, a local, organic farm on the North Shore of Oahu.

At GoLeanSixSigma.com, we help everyone everywhere improve their organizations by making learning and applying Lean Six Sigma easier. But, we don’t stop there. We also help fellow citizens and communities across the globe to continuously improve as well.

In an effort to help continuously improve our communities and inspire you to improve yours, we’re honored to fulfill our social responsibility by volunteering our time one day a month. Our goal is to help organizations whose mission is to make our world a better place accomplish their most immediate goals.

For the month of June, our Hawaii Team volunteered at Mohala Farms. Mohala Farms is an organic, non-profit farm located in Wailua, Oahu. The farms fosters healthy communities across the island of Oahu through sustainable agriculture. Thanks to Mohala Farms, we were able to support their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and connect more consumers with the farmers. We’re grateful for the opportunity to help support our local community through Mohala Farm’s efforts to create a connected community and support local farmers.

If you ate today, thank a farmer!
