Hawaii farming couple
Aloha, We're Daniel + Leandra 

FARMER FLORIST DUO LOCATED IN WAIMANALO, OAHU

Both born and raised on the windward side of Oahu, we've grown up with a love for all things nature. Together with this love and gratitude, we farm one-acre of lush tropical land with over 50 varieties of ginger and heliconia! Some species include sexy pink heliconia, kawauchi, stricta, tagami, torch gingers and an assortment of beehive gingers amongst many others. We strive to push the boundaries of tropical floristry by searching for uncommon species of flowers, and using novelty plants and fruits found locally in our arrangements. From seed to table, we personally manage the entire process to ensure you are provided with the best possible blooms for your event.

Leandra Gollob

WAIMANALO, OAHU

Born and raised in Waimanalo, Leandra was embedded with a love of all things green and natural since an early age. Prior to Cocolani, she spent many of her early years traveling Asia, Europe and Central America, broadening her cultural perspectives on lifestyle and traditions. In 2014 Leandra returned to the islands and studied agricultural business and bio-intensive farming techniques. She acquired Cocolani Gardens in 2014 and spent the first two years clearing and reclaiming the overgrown land. Ambition has grown stronger each year spent working the land and pursuing the ultimate vision of Cocolani Gardens and making the dream come true! 

Daniel Mench 

KAHALUU, OAHU

In 2019, Daniel planted himself in Cocolani Gardens. Being born and raised on windward Oahu, he has cultivated a deep passion for nature and its aesthetic essence. With certifications in plant medicine and plant breeding, Daniel was eager to expand the flowers towards more rare varieties to display Mother Nature's raw organic beauty. His non-traditional approach of floral and greenery usage, and attention to detail, is the backbone to each of their exquisite arrangements.
