The very first podcast of Smart Living Hawaii is centered around Farming here in Hawaii. Our guest today is Pomai Weigert w/ GoFarm Hawaii and we will walk you through Hawaii's farming industry from the past to our future. How the ancient Hawaiians lived off the land, to the plantation workers, commercial farming and helping Hawaii become self-sustaining through farming initiatives today. GoFarm Hawaii has grown to become one of the largest and most successful beginning farmer development programs in the Nation. In 2012, the University of Hawaii discussed the need for a new kind of beginning farmer training program – one that had a science-based curriculum, included rigorous hands-on & business training and was open to all willing adults. A program that would prepare those who were interested in becoming a farmer with the knowledge, experience, and confidence to contribute to Hawaii’s food security and economy as production farmers.
