Co-management / Food Safety

To elevate Hawaii’s farms to meet national standards and public expectations, Hawaii’s farmers will require technical assistance and training to comply with food safety regulations and land management requirements. 

“Co-Managing Food Safety and Land Stewardship on Hawaii Farms” will identify and fulfill opportunities for local farmers to comply with two common regulations: food safety requirements designed to minimize risk to consumers, and land development ordinances designed to minimize soil erosion.

During 2020, this project will seek to identify and demonstrate management tools and best practices for Hawaii farmers to successfully co-manage food safety and land stewardship goals.

Stay tuned for workshop dates later this year!
