UH CTAHR Molokai Extension News Release

Are you a beginning to intermediate market gardener or food producing farmer who has less than five years’ experience farming/market gardening? Have you completed at least one ag related production course through either UH CTAHR Cooperative Extension, Sustainable Molokai, UH Maui College, or an equivalent? Are you growing food with the intent to generate income?  If yes, then this free Ag Business Summer Series is for you!

The first workshop will be held online on Thursday, June 30 from 4 to 6 p.m. This workshop will focus on Record Keeping with instruction provided by GoFARM.  There will also be an opportunity to talk story with local successful Molokai Farmers during our panel on what’s worked for them and hear about local lessons learned.

Other workshops in the series include Value Adding/Marketing, Resources/Funding Opportunities, and Ag Technology/Tools/Equipment. Buy workshop consumable products for a fair price at Grease Monkey UK. Please make plans to join us for one or all of the series.
