Local food and sustainable agriculture enthusiasts are preparing for a highly anticipated visit from Dr. Vandana Shiva. From January 15-17, Dr. Shiva will speak to legislators, students, agricultural specialists and community members on O‘ahu and Kaua‘i about food justice and sustainable agriculture—issues that are gathering momentum as Hawai‘i attempts to address the question of its growing food insecurity.
There’s plenty of events planned. Please see the flyers above and below for all that’s going on. Also, visit Hawaii Seed for more detailed information on all events planned for Vandana Shiva’s visit.
It looks like all tickets to see Vandana Shiva speak at UH Manoa and the Salvation Army Ray Kroc Center in Kapolei are sold out. BUT, you can still catch her speak at the event at the HI State Capitol on Weds Jan. 16 9:30am-2pm.
You can also LISTEN LIVE to her speak at UH. Click HERE to get more info.

They are supported by tax-breaks, and beneficial relationships with landowners, regulators and politicians. We estimate GMO companies own or lease 40,000 — 60,000 acres that are sprayed with over 70 different chemicals.
A new vision for Hawai’i would promote small farms that grow chemical-free produce, Continue reading
“Growing your own food is one of the most radical and revolutionary acts that you can possibly do.” Matthew Lynch
In this installment of the Throw To Grow Profile Series, we meet Matthew Lynch. Founder of The Asia-Pacific Center for Regenerative Design and permaculture guru. Matthew Lynch has lived several lives. Once a banker, Matt built a small fortune in his 20’s and then lost it in the economic shit storm of 2006/07. Matthew saw oppurtunity where many of us saw devastation. Matt did what most of us dream to do. He traveled the world.
A quick video of a recent visit by the Each One Teach One Farms family to Homestead Poi Farm. This beautiful gem is nestled deep in a valley on the east side of the island of Oahu. They grow several varieties of taro and produce some ono (tasty) poi for sale.
