Meet Mana Microbes: Earth Stewards committed to closing the food loop on Maui ๐ŸŒŽ

Welcome to Mana Microbes! We’re a family-run business on the North Shore of Maui, and we’ve been going strong since February 2020. Our mission? To partner with the local community to create a closed loop food system that supports the environment and local community. Together we can work towards a more sustainable and integrated food system. We believe in harnessing the power of food waste to create a a more sustainable future for everyone.

What we do

Food Waste Collection Service

We make food waste collection a breeze for residential households and small businesses. Each week, we pick up your food scraps and work our magic, transforming waste into compost that will rejuvenate our soils .

How it Works

  1. Sign up and receive a clean 5-gallon bucket with a lid.
  2. Fill your bucket with food scraps throughout the week (check our food scrap guidelines).
  3. Put your bucket out the night before your pick-up day, and we’ll swap it with a clean one in the morning.
  4. Enjoy discounts on Vermicompost as a subscriber!


Our farm’s superstar residents? Red wiggler earthworms! These little wrigglers excel at processing food waste and converting it into “worm castings” or “vermicompost” (also known as Black Gold). This natural soil amendment is packed with plant nutrients and beneficial soil microbes, perfect for reviving damaged soil.

We’re proud to offer our vermicompost to home gardeners and farmers. Plus, we sell red wiggler worms for enthusiastic home composters.

Regenerative Agricultural Services

We’re passionate about fostering a sustainable future, and that includes providing regenerative agricultural services to our community.


At Mana Microbes, we’re not just about creating high-quality compostโ€”we’re also committed to spreading the word. We educate our community on the value of composting and teach essential skills for composting at home or in schools.

So, join us on our journey to close the food loop and nurture our environment. Together, we can create a greener, healthier world for future generations. ๐ŸŒฟ
