The Friends of Amy B. H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden (Friends) is a community-based non-profit that owns and manages the ethnobotanical Garden/Community Forest (Garden) located in Captain Cook, Hawaii Island.  

The Mission Statement of the Friends is: “As stewards of the Garden’s legacy, we cultivate opportunities for everyone to enjoy our Hawaiian botanical and cultural resources through educational programs, scientific research, recreation, and conservation for the islands and the world.” The13.6- acre Garden is home to many unique native and endangered Hawaiian plants as well as Polynesian canoe plants of cultural importance, living collections of kalo (taro) and sugar cane and other agroforestry cultivars, a large intact archaeological remnant of the Hawaiian agricultural Kona Field System, representative plant zone groupings, and a Hawaiian Heiau. The Friends have recently undertaken Strategic Planning, and current planned programming includes providing educational, recreational, and research opportunities to the community and visitors.
