Explore Our Farm & Gardens
We welcome students, teachers and chaperones to take an educational journey through The Gardens with our knowledgeable and professional tour guides, then join in on some of the activities to manage a farm. In 2017 we hosted over 4,000 students at our farm!
Discover and explore the wonderful world of soilless farming with our knowledgeable staff guiding you through the gardens. This is a brief 45 minute overview and tour of our farm. We hope that this tour will spark new ideas and renew interests in locally grown foods as you gain a deeper understanding of Hawaii’s food systems and the impact it has on society.
Get an exclusive Behind-The-Scenes tour of our aquaponic facility. This 1 hour and 30 minutes tour grants you access to all of our food production systems. Our tour guides are working members of the farm’s many operations so you can be assured that the information provided is coming from first-hand experience. See what it takes to run a commercial aquaponic farm from experts in this field!

About 3 weeks ago I found out my daughter's school had a field trip planned to this place. When I asked her teacher where it's located she said "Mililani". Wait what?! How did I not know about this place when it's only a 10 minute drive from our home...in MILILANI!... read more3/08/2018

I LOVE Maris garden! The staff is very helpful and they even drive you around in golf carts. Very knowledgeable about their products and setting up aquaponics at home. They really care about you getting what is right for you and not just selling you stuff. The store is cute... read more8/31/2017
I love Mari's Garden produce and I also love Gardens! While shopping at Chef Zone, I bought a bag of baby romaine and it happen to be Mari's Garden's produce. I am amazed at how fresh the romaine taste, I did a Yelp search and came across one of my... read more8/29/2017

If the service is half of the experience itself, I'd have to say these past few treks to Mari's Gardens have been superb (AKA Shannon)! I've been coming here on and off for several years now but more recently, Mari's has opened up a cool, nifty organic greens and veggies... read more2/28/2017
This garden is so amazing! They grow and sell all different types of fruits and veggies. It's an aquaponic and hydroponics facility. So, they also have fish (talapia, swai and Chinese catfish) for their systems but they also sell it by the pound. Their veggies are all ORGANIC! Being... read more6/25/2016
A few of us had a chance to tour Mari's Gardens and sample some of their produce. We never knew how much work was involved just to grow agriculture. At the end of the day you really realize how much we take for granted and also from a nutritional standpoint... read more2/14/2016
If you've frequented Whole Foods in Hawaii Kai or Kailua, Halekulani, Island Fresh or Umeke's lately - chances are you've probably eaten and seen some of the produce from Mari's Garden (that's just a small listing of some of the companies that purchase produce from Mari's Garden).

They are more of a commercial landscape nursery, so don't expect to find ornamental plants like you would at the home improvement warehouse or big box department stores. What they are good at are organic and aquaponic produce, mostly sold to commercial customers, but ask if they have any vegetables... read more3/16/2013
Hidden oasis in a residential neighborhood in Mililani. Selection "up front" appears limited, however if you tell them what you are looking for you can hop on a golf cart and scan their multi-acre nursery.Their biggest secret is organic vegetables. Most of their crop is spoken for, but if you're... read more11/19/2011
