Hawaii plan would offset cost of organic farm certification
By CATHY BUSSEWITZ
Associated Press

WAIMANALO, Hawaii (AP) – On a farm tucked under a lush Hawaii mountainside, Sean Anderson tends passion fruit, kale and salad greens – using only what nature provides.
He creates his own compost and fertilizers and doesn’t use chemicals. But he’s not certified as an organic farmer because the cost is too high.

“The margins on farming are so slim as it is that any additional cost really can make or break the success of your business,” said Anderson, founder and farm manager of Green Rows Farm.

Pu`ukua Fundraiser / Waimea Valley / May 1
Hi`ipaka LLC, the nonprofit that manages Waimea Valley, is organizing a campaign to purchase Pu`ukua, the last remaining private parcel in Waimea Valley.  Almost a decade ago, community partners, OHA, and others came together to purchase Waimea Valley and save it from private development.  Now, they can make the valley completely secure by purchasing this parcel.  They are seeking sponsors, auction items and pledges.
As part of the campaign, they will have a PU’UKUA FUNDRAISER on May 1, where you will have the opportunity to see Jack Johnson and others perform.  If you can make it, I’m sure that Hi`ipaka would be grateful.
