Ever wondered what it was like to be a student at UH Manoa back in the day? Agnes Terao-Guiala, an alumna of CTAHR, was more than happy to tell us. Her experiences and education brought her many opportunities, such as teaching to publishing a book, Hawaiian Women’s Fashions: Kapa, Cotton, and Silk.
Some years ago, an Australian native insect called the “macadamia felted coccid” found its way to Hawaiʻi, causing leaf and branch die back, flower drop and sometimes, tree death among Macadamia trees. Relatively recently, the invasive pest insect became widespread on the Big Island – and of course, this has led to reduced crop yields.
Step one: Procure a grant of $1,983,479 from the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. Step two: Establish a network of on-farm Soil Health Management Systems demonstrations that are individually tailored, regionally adapted, and managed by farmers.
CTAHR has joined the Honolulu Board of Water Supply for the first-ever statewide ‘Imagine A Day Without Water’ campaign – and our amazing students prove they’ve got the video chops to send that message far and wide. Don’t believe me?! Well, check out Cody Ching and Jessie Orozco and Nicole Acasio – and see for yourself!
