What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, the people, the people! This unique four-day conference will be gathering youth/students, community members, farmers, professors, scientists, and traditional practitioners from all walks of life, from many disciplines, and a diversity of cultures and experiences that will build our personal and communal relationships with the ‘aina (land) and each other. It is our hope that by sharing our collective wisdom and knowledge that we will challenge ourselves to make commitments, develop partnerships, plan strategies, and implement innovative solutions to build self-sufficiency and food sovereignty within ourselves, our families, and our communities.
