If commercial farming is a key to economic diversification in our island state, why not start with Hawaiʻi’s premier beginning farmer training program?

On Wednesday, August 26, GoFarm Hawaiʻi will hold its next AgCurious session for Windward Oʻahu. The free webinar is the first step for anyone interested in GoFarm’s highly successful, beginning farmer training.

In this introductory meeting, community members can learn about the program, the importance of agriculture in Hawaiʻi, and the need for farmers in the state. The content is designed to help participants understand what it takes to be a farmer, the options available for getting started, and the commitment level in order to participate in this program. Participants also have an opportunity to network with the site coach and current participants/alumni, and find out how to apply for the next step, AgXposure.

“Are you AgCurious? Do you know anyone who wants to learn the basics of commercial farming? GoFarm Hawaiʻi Windward is recruiting for its next cohort!” says Janel Yamamoto, Director. “Get more details about the program at the August 26th AgCurious webinar. Register today at GoFarm Hawaiʻi!”
