Aloha FarmLovers! 
This is such an exciting time, with so many organizations focusing on food and fuel self-sufficiency for our islands. In case you are unaware, here are just a few of the organizations busily working, behind the scenes, to make sure the land can continue to feed us: Hawaii Farmers’ Union United supports family farmers and regenerative agriculture to ensure that farmers in Hawaii who are growing local food for local consumption can make a decent living; The Food and Fuel Foundation is working to create systems in Hawaii to achieve zero fossil fuel impact by recycling our waste; The Hawaii Organic Farmer Association is helping farmers with obtaining and maintaining organic certification and education; Representative Chris Lee has created and passed a bill giving $50,000 in tax rebates to assist organic farmers with certification costs; and FarmLovers Farmers’ Markets is supporting all these groups by being a distribution point for local agriculture. If we all work together with these and many other like-minded groups, our desire to increase the production of healthy, locally-grown food will be reached, and the reliance on food imports will be reduced! And each time you choose to shop at the farmers’ market from your favorite farmers, you become part of this important effort. Mahalo!

COMING SOON TO HALEIWA!

Our first movie is Pirates Of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl. Come dressed in pirate attire to join in the fun.
