  1. Hi,
    I am a cooperative educator and sustainable ag organizer from North Dakota. My husband and I are planning a visit to Hawaii sometime this year. Is there someone on the island of Maui that you could connect me with regarding local food initiatives, soil conservation, and efforts to make healthy food more accessible to children? I read the article about Bena Pegg and Dave Fischer visiting MN (our neighbor!) and visiting co-op’s.
    Would love to connect with someone :)
