Ag Forum gathers key sustainability leaders of Kauai

Ken Stokes reports on his SuSHI  sustainability blog about the ag forum that happened on Kauai this weekend. Read all about  Kauai Ag Forum and Sustainability

Be sure to check all of the links in Ken's posts. They are each little pearls of wisdom unto themselves. I saw Ken for coffee last week and he mentioned a community in Toronto where a group of people are growing food in people's back yards. In other words, the property owners let this group manage their garden because they know how to, and perhaps the owners are too busy. Then, this food is distributed amongst the 500 folks who are participating in this system. And that's in Toronto.

Imagine what would be possible on an island like Kauai, where everything grows whether you want it to or not!

Yeah well, where there's a will there is a way, that's for sure.
