My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here. It is located next to Dole Plantation on Oahu.
“Helemano Plantation, a place “where aloha begins” – A unique community of people caring for people. A place where you truly take a piece of Aloha with you. Once a dream, Helemano Plantation also founded by Mrs. Susanna F. Cheung, provides a “real world” work environment for the developmentally disabled. Helemano Plantation offers training and employment opportunities in its work centers. You will be able to visit the Country Inn Restaurant, Gateway to Asia, Gift Shop, Bake Shop, Farm, and Garden.”
