Amber Taulbee, an incubator farmer from Seattle Tilth, was in Hawai'i with her family and came to check out our Waimanalo site. We asked Amber a lot of questions about Seattle Tilth too (www.seattletilth.org) @seattletilth. We also recently gave a tour to folks from the Hawaii Crop Improvement Association, who visited our Waimanalo site as part of a day of touring sites on the Windward side of O'ahu.
Beans, beans, they make you... work hard when you don't have appropriate machinery. GoFarm Hawai'i @ Windward is participating in a Specialty Crop Bock Grant project to test suitability of bean varieties for Hawai'i. When it came time to harvest, an invitation, some beer, and a lot of sweat and Aloha from fellow GoFarmers got things done!
AgXposure tour at Kauaʻi Food Forest in Kīluaea. Group learned many topics including biodiveristy, composting, intercropping, using nitrogen fixing crops and were exposed to over 100 varieties of fruit trees.
Kauaʻi AgPro fencing getting started today!!! Its about to get real serious over here!!!!
Cohort 4 begins with a workday at Kealia Farm's Lo'i with Dr. Adam Asquith. Instead of being discouraged by the hard work, this group is stoked and hungry for more!
First Japan, and now New Zealand? Our globetrotting team members bring along GoFarm Hawai'i stickers to spread the Aloha. Here's one in a bar in Wellington, New Zealand. (Japan is at http://www.gofarmhawaii.org/blog/gofarm-hawaii-japan). The Director neglected to bring stickers to Indonesia, Malaysia, or Australia, thus missing multiple opportunities to have cool pix like this. Also pictured, Jay, Nora, and Kailu in the Gondwana Rainforest (Australia), and the very cool Mahi'ai: A film collective event (Kaka'ako Agora) where ag films were shown.
