Register for Event here: Resource Recovery Maui 2022: Reclaiming Water
In it’s fifth year, Farmers Voice Hawai‘i’s event theme is Resource Recovery Maui 2022: Reclaiming Water. It has been a transformative time in our four island Maui County and the need to learn from and lean on each other hasn’t been more true. Farmers Voice Hawai‘i has been witness to inspirational stories and looks forward to these stories being a part of our virtual library. Resource Recovery Maui 2022 will again highlight the best of sustainable agriculture practices and examples of water use and restoration efforts.
This years’ featured speakers are (alphabetical): Nicole Mahealani Carbonell from the Honomanu Restoration Project celebrating capacity building progress; Kekoa Enomoto, Pa‘upena Community Development speaking about securing water for homesteaders; Shay Chan Hodges an engaged Maui County citizen addressing corporate control of water; Napua Hueu from Hana Highway Regulation speaking about the effects of tourism and Hana Highway winter plans; Ki‘i Kaho‘ohanhano sharing important cultural parallels; Student representation from Kukulu Kumuhana cohort sharing cultural experiences of summer farm work tour; Wetlands advocate Robin Knox speaking on importance of wetlands; Share Your Mana Advisory Committee and influencing government; Sarah Malik Wahls from the Forest Bird Project with updates on the ‘Alala (Hawaiian corw) project; and Zenuru Ho‘olako Farm Ranch, Emmitt Freitas and Samuel Hambek from Kahikinui Hawaiian Homestead will make presentation on watershed restoration work. The event moderator is Jordan Hocker who is an active and engaged Maui County citizen and justice advocate.
Lawmakers and local decision makers are always invited to Resource Recovery Maui. The content feed created from this event will be extrapolated and delivered to lawmakers. This strengthens the lines of communication between community, businesses and elected leaders. This event supplies valuable reference information and is a continuing tool for strong civic development.
In 2018, the event’s opening theme was Resource Recovery: What it Really Looks Like and in 2019, the event was Resource Recovery: Taking Conversation to Direct Action. It was a good sign of particular progress with water topics that 2020’s theme was Resource Recovery: Let the Solutions Flow and in 2021 Resource Recovery: Connecting Na Moku (islands) allowed a virtual platform to deliver progressive stories throughout Hawai‘i.
Please make considerations to join us, there are uplifting water subjects we look to cover this year.
