Hawaii Homegrown Food Network launches new Web site

MEDIA RELEASE

The Hawaii Homegrown Food Network has launched a new Web site. The network is dedicated to building Hawaii Island’s local and sustainable food economy. Since early 2009 the network has produced a monthly newsletter chronicling events, diverse website resources, reports about island groups’ activities, and announcements related to our local food sustainability and security.

The new Web site contains all these features and more, including an events calendar, resource lists, and blog.

The site also features a community page where home growers, farmers, and wholesalers to retailers, restaurants, support organizations, and consumers can interact with each other.

In addition, Web site visitors can view the various educational programs, government agencies, and grass-roots organizations providing research, resources, advocacy, and infrastructure support for our sustainable food economy.

The project is sponsored by county Resource Center, a program of the Department of Research and Development, the Hawaii Agricultural Development Program in partnership with the Big Island RC&D Council, the Hawaii People’s Fund and the Hawaii Community Foundation.

Membership in the Hawaii Homegrown Food Network and subscription to the monthly newsletter are free. Individuals, farms, businesses, and organizations are invited to visit the Web site, subscribe to the newsletter, and register as members.
