You won't want to miss the upcoming TEDxHonoluluSalon “The Future of Agriculture in Hawaii”-- a discussion with three of the most influential people nurturing the future of food sustainability on our islands. Our speakers will include Steven Chiang of the beginning farmer training program GoFarm Hawaii, Kyle Datta of impact investment firm Ulupono Initiative and A'dae Romero-Briones from next-generation island community Palama Lanai. GoFarm Hawaii's Steven Chiang, guest curator and speaker says, "With the recent announcement to end a 35,000 acre agricultural operation in Hawaii, it is especially timely for an agriculture-themed TEDxHonoluluSalon event. Attendees will hear three thoughtful perspectives on what agriculture in Hawaii could look like a generation or two from now. I’m excited that all speakers share an optimism about improved agriculture through a deeper integration with society and our environment: Kyle Datta from a technological standpoint, A’dae Romero-Briones with a traditional/indigenous lens, and my own view of the public’s role in agriculture.” Tickets available at http://www.TEDxHonoulu.org
