After years of friendship, but only two weeks of dating, Brendan and Kelly moved to Hawaii to work for Pacific Quest, a gardening therapy program based on the Big Island of Hawaii for at risk youth. Once arriving on the island, they needed a way to get around so they purchased a Big Blue Bronco which would become their only home for the next 18 months. “We traveled all over in Big Blue, soaking up the scenery, tasting the salty air, and relishing the magic of the Island.”-Kelly Hazouri
It was both life changing & liberating for the couple to live out of a backpack. Working long hours in the field and then spending long weekends exploring the natural beauty of the islands. While Brendan & Kelly were embracing this new soul quenching lifestyle, they also adopted an array of healthy practices. Instantly falling in love with both the Hawaiian culture and the cuisine, both of which would later become the foundation of their business.
When they weren’t traveling, Brendan & Kelly were teaching their students at Pacific Quest the lessons they would never learn in a classroom. Their education system focused on stress management and the importance of the mind/body connection. Through this small sect of wilderness therapy, teens were able to gain the tools necessary to build a happy healthy lifestyle while simulataneously learning practical life skills and the importance of organic gardening.
