Aloha land owners, project managers, farmers, gardeners and green thumbs alike!!
As we enter into 2018 it is looking to be an outstanding year in Local Agriculture. Newly available lands, multitudes of new farmers and the rapid advancements in information sharing and technology has propelled farming into the mainstream and it’s progressing at a tremendous rate.
Unfortunately with this rapid advancement 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 I see involve some very talented and brilliant individuals entering into Agricultural projects armed with mis-information… information usually related to off island experiences and results. Although this information is a great tool for a start, it is usually just enough to allow most ventures to go deep 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.
