Hawaiian Islands Land Trust now protects over 17,000 acres of conservation lands in Hawaii. Following retirement from the Land Trust in 2012, Dale began the Affordable Farming Project, with the goal of providing an effective, affordable method for the establishment of small, sustainable “family farms” which includes permanent leases and the ability for the farmers to build equity in their working farm.

Anne worked at Castle Hospital and the Queen’s Medical Center as a unit manager. They moved to Maui in 1996 where one of her daughters and her family had settled.
