Hawai‘i Public Seed Initative: Train the Trainers
September 13-15, 2013
“‘Ma ka hana ka ‘ike,’ by doing we learn. It’s in all cultures,” said Program Director Nancy Redfeather at the 6th Annual Hawaii Island School Garden Network Summer Symposium, June 7-8, at Hawaii Preparatory Academy. “It’s inspiring to work with teachers. To watch the growth this year has been amazing,” said Redfeather. “I started teaching in 1969, and this has been the best ever for me.”
According to Jim Cain, program director for The Kohala Center’s beginning farmer training program, growing food requires just three basic things: land, water, and people. “Our island has plenty of land and water, but we are in need of more people who want to make a living as farmers,” he said.
A local not-for-profit center is connecting West Hawaii communities interested in conservation and management of their fishery with easy-to-use tools that allow greater stewardship of fish populations. The Kohala Center developed a voluntary spawning guide, a colorful poster rich with pictures and information teaching users to fish more responsibly, to help preserve Hawaii’s vibrant and precious marine resources.
