We all benefit from backing agriculture

Thank you for the recent articles by staff writers Paul Curtis and Lester Chang

concerning the positive outlook for diversified agriculture on Kaua’i. Many

people and organizations are doing a fine job in promoting agriculture here,

and we all benefit.

I want to take this opportunity to inform the community

that the Kaua’i Products Council has an initiative underway to assist

productmakers and growers on our island. This program is called the Business

Advancement Project. The project will provide mentors and business workshops.

In addition, the council, in partnership with the Kaua’i Food Bank, will offer

instruction in farming and marketing produce and other crops.

The project

is just now getting underway. Information about the project and how to benefit

from it will be in the press soon.
