Rubbish to Resource with Chantal Chung of Maona Community Gardens & Evan Lam of Circlepack
Wednesday May 25, 6:30-8:00pm HST
We can create healthier soil by better managing our waste stream. Join us to learn how several proof of concept projects on Hawaii Island are developing methods to move away from the linear extract-process-consume-dispose model of agriculture into a circular model that retains agricultural biomass and food processing waste as renewable resources strengthens our food systems and makes them more resilient to natural hazards, environmental and climate changes, and shifts in global economies.
