Hamakua Resistance Network monthly meeting
Much as many mourned the passing of the sugar era which offered decent, stable jobs, and created the diversity of our communities, mono-cropping depleted the soil, heavy trucks dominated our highways, yearly cane burning threw out carbon and particulate matter. Twenty five years post-sugar, most Hamakua residents want to keep ag in ag (it’s in the Hawaii County General Plan - Hamakua District Section 2.4.4) - small ag that is, not big ag with their pesticides and toxic runoff — but it’s hard to keep small family farms afloat.
What kind of farming methods can help us with our carbon neutral and other environmental goals?
What Is “regenerative” agriculture? Can it help to sequester carbon?
What about the economics?
Can this kind of farming ensure the security and prosperity of small family farmers?
Many among our Hamakua Resistance membership are small farmers--Come with your own experiences and ideas!
