With the imminent closing of the last sugar plantation on Maui, large-scale agriculture in Hawaii may soon become a distant memory - unless we work together to ensure that our aina is used productively.
Dr. Keli'i Akina, President and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, will give a presentation showing that 540,000 acres of crop and pastureland has been lost since 1980, and what we can do about it.
