Episode 15:
Regenerative Agriculture

Thursday, July 29 • 5:30-7pm
Prince Waikiki

In-person $75 / Online via Zoom Webinar $10

For this event, the ETD event series returns to a live, in-person format to hear from keynote speaker Wayne Wade, President of SumaGrow® – an award-winning product used in regenerative agricultural practices. SumaGrow® is made from a combination of carefully selected microorganisms proven to promote rich, fertile soil and work with the plant to supply the nutrients it needs, when it needs them. Standard land use and conventional farming practices have compromised soil quality, diminished nutrition, and loss of important trace minerals in our food supply. However, regenerative farming practices and the use of SumaGrow® can improve soil health for producing high quality, nutrient dense food, and lead to productive farms and healthy communities and economies.

Wade’s keynote presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on how and where regenerative agriculture is currently being implemented in Hawai‘i. The panel discussion will be moderated by Kainoa Carlson of Hawaii News Now and feature:
• McCabe Cox, Chief Operations Officer, Clean Energy Solutions Pacific
• Hannah Hubanks, Conservation Specialist, Oahu RC&D
• David Wong, Owner, Mountain View of Farms
