Agri-Business Workshops for Farmers

Molokai Dispatch
UHCTAHR Molokai Extension News Release

Whether you are an experienced farmer, an up and coming market gardener, or find yourself anywhere in between, then this is the workshop series for you! There will be four free workshops offered throughout August and September that will focus on the business side of agriculture and farming. The workshops will be offered both in person and have a Zoom component for those who are unable to meet in person.

The first workshop will be held Thursday, Aug. 12 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the UH Molokai Applied Research and Demonstration Farm Classroom (next to Kumu Farms). This workshop will focus on Farm Record Keeping and will be a blend of instruction and a Q & A session with a panel made up of Molokai farmers. There are 10 in-person seats available and an unlimited number of spaces available to join by Zoom. The in-person seats will be filled in the order the online registrations are received. To register, please visit sustainablemolokai.org. Should you have any questions, please email Jamie Ronzello at jamie@sustainablemolokai.org.

Other workshops in the series include Marketing on Aug. 26, Post-Harvest Handling (field demonstration) on Sept. 2, and Resources/Funding on Sept. 9. Please make plans to join us for one or all of the series.

The Agri-Business Summer Series is offered to you through a partnership between Sustainable Molokai, GoFarm Hawaii, and UH CTAHR Molokai Cooperative Extension. Funding is provided by USDA’s Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement. The series is open to everyone without regard to race, age, sex, color or disability. Educational activities are accessible for individuals with disabilities.
