Event Re-cap: Maui Growing Local

June 3, 2010 at 9:41 am Leave a comment

Over 130 people turned out on Saturday, May 15 to celebrate, dissect, chew and digest the subject of growing food on Maui. At  Maui Growing Local, locavore potluck dishes were piled on tables and attendees loaded their plates with the delicious variety of edibles Maui makes possible. Hosted by the current sustainability groups on Maui, South Maui Sustainability (SMS), Upcountry Sustainability (US), West Maui Sustainability (WMS) and the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM), Maui Growing Local was dedicated to supporting and strengthening Maui agriculture.

Steve Phillips, of WMS reflected, “What inspired me most from this event was the realization that, not only can our diverse and opinionated people on Maui work together in the spirit of aloha, but that it is absolutely essential that we work in coordinated cooperation in order to reach our sustainability goals.”

Rob Parsons’ parting words were, “It’s a great start. Now we need to go out and take action.”

For those interested in getting involved, and to view the results of the 12 groups, visit www.southmauisustainability.org, www.upcountrysustainability.com, and www.westmauisustainability.weebly.com

Keep an eye out for the full article submitted to the Maui Weekly to be published the week of June 10.

UPDATE: Here is a list of the Top Ideas and Associated Actions that came out of the working groups.
