There are a lot of myths about the seed industry in Hawaii, and, as Executive Director of HCIA, it is Alicia Maluafiti’s job to provide the truth. She did just this in an op-ed published in Honolulu Civil Beat on July 5th that encouraged readers to evolve a broader view of Hawaii’s seed industry. The op-ed provided the insight that reaching sustainability is going to require collaboration. “For agriculture to truly thrive in Hawaii, we must accept that there is no single correct method of farming… Farmers and consumers each make personal decisions about the type of food that they produce and consume, so the only solution is to do our best to create a harmonious agricultural system that accommodates everyone’s needs,” she writes.
