This week, Hawaii Public Radio is taking a closer look at food in the
islands. We call it “Feeding Ourselves, Hawaii’s
Food Future.” All week, we’ll report on a number of issues relating to food.
Today, we start with people. The future of locally-grown food not only depends
on land, water and crops—it also depends on farmers. The average age of a
farmer in Hawaii is now sixty. But there’s one farm in Waianae that’s leading a
youth movement—growing not only food, but also growing farmers. HPR’s Molly
