The 2nd Hands Turned to the Soil Conference on Food Sovereignty was held in June in Hilo, Hawai'i. Kokua and 'AINA IS representatives met youth and their mentors, farmers, and educators working toward food independence and sustainability throughout Hawai'i. It was inspiring to see so many different approaches: school & community gardens, healthy snack preparation, kalo farming, GMO activism, vermicomposting, coastal fisheries protection, and more. Activities included workshops and demonstrations to share experiences and techniques, farm field trips, and a lu'au prepared by conference youth. Kokua helped to sponsor the travel costs for youth groups attending this awesome event.
