Download “Hawaii’s Farm to Table” activity book 

Hawaii’s Farm to Table follows the adventures of farmer Sam, Kona the worm and Leilani the bee as they learn about farming and growing food – and discover, among other things, that pizza doesn’t grow on trees. The island-inspired activity book was illustrated by Ileana Soon and Lori Nishikawa. Click HERE for a digital download.


Mahalo for the Inspiration

At Bayer, we’re working toward our vision: Health for All, Hunger for None. That’s why we believe in positive community involvement, from donations and volunteerism to educational grants, civic engagement, sustainability initiatives, and collaborations.


Along the way, we’ve been fortunate to connect with many amazing people and organizations working relentlessly to help strengthen communities across Hawaii. So we’d like to share a bit about what we’ve been up to, and more importantly, shout out a sincere mahalo for the opportunity to learn about – and be inspired by – the efforts of so many community members across the islands.


STEM Education

As avid believers in STEM education, Bayer Hawaii and Bayer Fund (the philanthropic arm of Bayer in the United States) are proud to encourage youth across the islands. To date, more than $150,000 has been awarded to graduating high school seniors through the Bayer Hawaii Life Sciences Scholarship, and more than $348,000 in school grants from the Bayer Fund - Hawaii Science Education Grant. Bayer Fund additionally supports FIRST Robotics nationally, including eligible teams in Hawaii.


Our employees have also helped to mentor student interns, build school gardens, organize school supply drives, serve as science fair judges, and volunteer for a wide array of educational activities for youngsters.



Health, Food & Nutrition

Whether it’s in dollars, volunteer hours, food and supplies, blood donations, or other in-kind giving, both Bayer and Bayer Fund care greatly about food, nutrition, and health-related endeavors in the community. Our employees have walked to help raise funds for cancer and kidney disease research and patient services, made life-saving donations to the Blood Bank of Hawaii, volunteered for agencies addressing homelessness, and organized multiple food drives including a recent collection of nearly 2,000 pounds of nonperishable items for foodbanks on three islands.


This past year, several Hawaii nonprofits including the Hawaii Foodbank, HUGS for Hawaii’s Seriously Ill Children and Their Families, Maui Economic Opportunity, and St. Damien of Molokai, successfully applied for a Bayer Fund grant to support their health- and food-focused programs. 




Every day, Bayer works to provide solutions that can enable farmers to plant, grow and protect their harvests while using less land, water and energy. And, we continue to pursue new possibilities in agriculture that can help address some of humanity’s greatest challenges and promote a more sustainable future for the planet.


Locally, we are also advocates of a resilient ag industry in Hawaii. In partnership with the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation and Island Palm Communities, the company helped establish the Ag Park at Kunia to help foster economic self-sufficiency for local farms and diversify island food production. Our employees regularly participate in ag-related organizations, events and activities, from the Hawaii State Farm Fair and Maui AgFest to FFA student chapters and Resource Conservation & Development Councils.

Bayer is passionate about being a positive community contributor. Through donations and employee volunteerism, we are gratified to have interacted with a number of deeply dedicated nonprofits and charities. Some of our activities include helping with fundraisers and toy drives, honoring our veterans, promoting arts & culture, and supporting community fairs.



Among the most historically significant projects we’ve worked on is the creation of the Hono`uli`uli National Historic Site on Oahu, the result of a yearslong collaboration with community organizations like the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai`i. Today, we continue to cooperate with the National Park Service as it progresses on its plan to bring the historic site to full fruition.

Sustainability is at the root of Bayer’s everyday operations in Hawaii. Internally, Bayer’s sustainability task force teams serve as a forum in which employees can share questions, best practices and potential resolutions to biodiversity and waste issues, for example: planting native species and maintaining pollinator habitats at our sites, decreasing demand on Hawaii’s natural resources, reducing waste in our operations, and engaging with the community to promote a more sustainable future.



Bayer and our employees have also given away Monarch Butterfly kits, carried out highway cleanups on three islands, helped rehabilitate a riparian corridor on Maui by restoring vegetation along the edges of a natural waterway, and volunteered for beach cleanups and Maui seabird recovery projects, among others.
