Cinderland is an ecovillage located in a beautiful, jungle-like landscape on the Big Island of Hawai’i. About 20 miles southeast of Hilo, and about 2 miles from the easternmost tip of the island, just a mile and a half from the coastline it lies. We are a community building a life founded on self-sustainability, organic gardening, and permaculture. We share the dream of a simple, healthy, natural way of life.

We are minutes away from the black sands beach, tide pools, volcano steam vents, warm ponds, Green Lake, “ecstatic dance”, health food store and many farmer’s markets, and neighbors ready to trade produce just around the corner on Papaya Farms Road.

Residents and neighbors gather in our kitchen for shared meals on our infamous Taco Tuesday potluck, and various other shindigs and drum jams. Our community kitchen also features an in ground fire pit, piano, and bunk beds.

All of our residents are at home in an all-you-can-eat buffet, you can eat whatever you like that grows on the land, we will teach you how to harvest sustainably and trade with the neighbors to keep the cycle going too. The gardens, greenhouse, solar oven, and solar dehydrator are also free for use to anyone who wants to learn.

We welcome people of all backgrounds and nationalities, particularly those that are open, love the earth and are committed to its preservation.

Come see what we’re about, we would love to have you here,
