Hawai‘i Public Seed Initative: Train the Trainers
September 13-15, 2013
A local not-for-profit center is connecting West Hawaii communities interested in conservation and management of their fishery with easy-to-use tools that allow greater stewardship of fish populations. The Kohala Center developed a voluntary spawning guide, a colorful poster rich with pictures and information teaching users to fish more responsibly, to help preserve Hawaii’s vibrant and precious marine resources.
Jim Cain doesn't sugarcoat it: Farming is tough work. Profits can fluctuate from year to year, making long-term planning both vital and next to impossible. It's not a 9-to-5, and it's rarely five days a week. It requires commitment and passion and a joy for working outdoors. In short, farming is not for everyone.
School garden teachers, classroom teachers, administrators, staff, volunteers, and interested community members from around the state may register now for the annual Hawai‘i Island School Garden Network (HISGN) summer symposium in June on Hawai‘i Island.
The symposium, “School Learning Gardens and Sustainability Education: Bringing Schools to Life and Life to Schools,” will be held June 7–8 in Kamuela at the Gates Performing Arts Center at Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy and Māla‘ai: The Culinary Garden of Waimea Middle School.
