Saturday May 15th
Noon: Locavore Potluck Lunch
1 PM to 4 PM: Workshop
Kihei Charter School [map]

Presented by South Maui Sustainability, Upcountry Sustainability, West Maui Sustainability & SLIM

Join us for the first Island Wide Meeting of Sustainability Groups on May 15th.
There will be opportunities for networking, finding out about the groups and joining or starting a new group and a Workshop using Rob Parson’s article Eleven Ideas for Fixing Agriculture on Maui to bring the community together and create an action plan to help us move towards a more sustainable agriculture model.

The ideas in the article include: Regional Composting, Rebuilding Depleted Soils, Edible Landscapes, Protection from Alien Species, Native Hardwoods Reforestation, Construction Grade Bamboo, Hemp, Government Incentives for farming and Subsistence Ag, Restoration of Hawaiian Coastal Fish Ponds, Aquaponics, Fair Allocation of Water Resources, & we’ve added Community & School Gardens. These are the idea from Rob’s article – not a complete list of things we can do.

We are looking for people with knowledge in any of the 12 areas mentioned in the article to participate in ‘action plan groups’ during the workshop. Please invite anyone you know that might have experience in these areas or any other ideas for improving agriculture on Maui. We will also have the opportunity for people to create groups for projects they want to implement, including ideas not discussed in the workshop.

Guest speakers include Rob Parsons who will describe his 11 ideas and Gerry Ross speaking on the current state of farming.
