Aloha land owners, project managers, farmers, gardeners and green thumbs alike!
As we enter into 2021, it’s looking to be an outstanding year for local agriculture, as many are realizing the importance of being self-sustainable by producing high quality local foods. Newly available lands, with multitudes of new farmers and training programs, have propelled agriculture into the mainstream and it’s progressing at a tremendous rate.
Unfortunately with this rapid placement of new farmers there also comes some serious downfalls, magnified by lots of mis-information and improper techniques to farm successfully in our island’s climate and soil structures. Most of the farming failures involve some very talented and brilliant individuals entering into agricultural projects armed with mis-information… information and data usually related to off-island experiences and results. Although this information is a great tool to start with, it’s just enough to allow most ventures to begin first plantings and then fail miserably with no benefits to the individuals, the land or the agricultural movement in the islands as a whole. Ironically these failures are not limited to farm sizes, finances and/or educational practices. Too many backyard gardeners, small-scale farmers, as well as multi million dollar projects fail miserably from poor planning, poor timing and simply too much unrelated information for Hawaii’s growing climate. Yes, too much unrelated information.
