    Landscape-Level Conservation Planning for Hawaiʻi's Small-Scale Farm Groups
    ( 2015-06-15) Esgate, Thomas W. ; Ilano, Eileen ; El-Swaify, Samir
    Landscape-level conservation planning makes sense for Hawaiʻi's small-scale farmers and natural resources. Small-scale farming in Hawai'i is on the rise. Farmers are producing food to feed their families, to meet the increasing demand for locally and sustainably grown agricultural products, and to move the Islands, which import between 60- 70% of fresh fruits and vegetables alone, toward food self-sufficiency.

    Conservation Practices for Small-Scale Hawaiian Farms
    ( 2015-06-15) Esgate, Thomas W. ; Ilano, Eileen ; El-Swaify, Samir
    The purpose of this handbook is to provide small-scale farmers on the Hawaiian Islands with the information necessary to implement effective soil management practices on their farms, with specific focus on soil and water conservation. Small-scale farms are becoming more common in Hawai'i as plantation agriculture involving sugarcane and pineapple has diminished, diversified agriculture has gained a firm foothold, and markets for fresh, local produce have expanded. Small-scale farmers are producing food to feed their families, to meet the increasing demand for locally and sustainably grown agricultural products, and to move the Islands, which import between 60-70% of fresh fruits and vegetables alone, toward food self-sufficiency.
