2021 HFUU Annual Convention
December 9-12, 2021
A Message from the HFUU President:
Our executive board has decided to not charge a fee for our convention this year, making it a donation only event. We want to outreach all of this valued information and training to as many as possible.
With that said our annual convention has historically been our main fundraiser for the operations of our organization throughout the year. What we will do is place donate buttons throughout the convention time and would encourage all that have the wherewithal to donate to do so as generously as you can.
As farmers and leaders we value and appreciate our ability to bring these presentations and programs to our community, and look forward when we can all meet physically once again. Mahalo Nui for your continued support of our efforts.
Be well. Stay positive and test negative.
Aloha, Vincent Mina | President HFUU/HFUF
