Annie, Senator Laura Thielen, Pamela, Representative Cynthia Thielen

We were so excited to see two amazing women at the market this Sunday! A giant “Hemp, Hemp hooray!” to Representative Cynthia Thielen (and Senator Mike Gabbard) for introducing and getting the Hemp Bill passed this session. This is an amazing opportunity for our farms to grow a new crop that can serve the islands, in many capacities, for years to come!  Mahalo Rep. Thielen, we hope you’ll come out soon and share with us the many uses of this crop!

Aloha FarmLovers!

You are quickly running out of time to register to vote in the August 13th primary! If you have moved since you last voted, or if you just coming of age… click here, and take care of this online before July 14th! Food and farming policy effects all of us, so research the candidates in your neighborhood and make sure they know what you think! How else will our civil servants know about their constituents; no one can be an expert in everything.

THURSDAY in HALEIWA!
  

Last chance! Thursday marks the final Screen on the Green of this summer with Honey I Shrunk the Kids… Come early to shop the market and walk through the Valley, then toss your blanket on the grass and enjoy some good old fashioned fun! If it rains… we will stay dry in the pavilion! Donations gratefully accepted to offset the cost of renting the films.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Pearlridge Center, FarmLovers Markets, Waimea Valley and Sterman Realty.
