Imagine a Hawaii in balance: that which feeds us, sustains us and builds our health and resilience. Imagine a secure Hawaii: a hawaii where everything that we need to thrive is grown, not flown here.

Hawaii Center for Food Safety (HCFS) produced and released a four-part video series, Regenerating Paradise, in 2018 and 2019 to educate the public about how healthy soil can mitigate climate change. View that series here: https://soilsolution.org/regenerating-paradise/

In season 2 of Regenerating Paradise, we learn from our land and our community just how possible this resilient Hawaii is. The event will feature the powerful women creating and restoring this thriving and balanced food system.

Hawaii’s food system is in the midst of an economic and cultural renaissance. One in which healthy agriculture drives healthy communities. Led by small scale producers, state-wide farm-to-school and cafeteria pilot programs, local composting initiatives, and community supported projects to preserve traditional Hawaiian foods, consumers and producers are together transforming what it means to eat like a local in Hawaii and beyond.

Initiatives in Hawaii are setting an example for how a circular, regenerative, and local food system can simultaneously support the economy, strengthen cultural heritage, and improve the overall health of a community.

In 2018 and 2019, Hawaii Center for Food Safety (HCFS) produced and released a four-part video series, Regenerating Paradise as part of an educational campaign around soils and climate mitigation. In HCFS’ Regenerating Paradise 2, HCFS showcases the expansion of the reconnection of land-health-to-human-health-to-community resilience in Hawaii.

This event is hosted by Center for Food Safety in partnership with Good Food Movement and Waiwai Collective.
