Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: Farms [on the continent] would be much larger, they would have much more land... Sustainable practices, recycling... there's more than enough food waste [in Waikīkī] to feed all the pigs on the island, twice over... Agriculture has issues somewhat different on the mainland than they are here... The big benefit here is that... you see all of the concerns... in one [farmer]... The textbooks describe how farms are run on the mainland, so I tell them to read the textbook.... then we focus on the differences, the history of the Polynesians bringing pigs from Southeast Asia, the importance of that in the culture, the tradition, the history, the differences between local and mainland.
