Haleakala Farmers Meeting Tuesday, January 22nd

– Maui, Hawai‘i Farmers Union United

Attention all ranchers, farmers, gardeners and people who eat food and want to support those who grow/catch/raise it.

The Haleakala Chapter of Hawai‘i Farmer’s Union United is moving back Upcountry to our new home at Kalama Intermediate Cafeteria. Public meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of every month, starting on January 22nd, 2019. Our mission is to advocate for the sovereign right of farmers, ranchers and fishers to create and sustain vibrant and prosperous agricultural communities for the benefit of all Hawai‘i through cooperation, education and legislation.

Each month we host a potluck dinner along with presentations and updates on topics of interest to the farming community. Doors open at 5:30pm, opening pule is at 6:15 and the meeting is pau by 8:30pm. During the presentations we will have a free and separate program for keiki. Admission is free, just bring a pot luck dish. If you want a night off from cooking, you can simply make a small cash contribution towards the meal. Either way, please come spend the evening with us.

Please note that you should use the upper parking lot, adjacent to the cafeteria and administration building.
