Agroforestry In Hawaii

In 2018 we began to create our Food Garden based on the knowledge of Agroforestry. Agroforestry is the intentional integration of native plant species into crops and animal farming systems to create environmental, economic, and social benefits. We have been documenting the different stages with the intention to create an online teaching library that will be available soon.
