Waimea Hawaiian Homesteaders’ Association is a nonprofit grantee under First Nations Development Institute’s Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative (NAFSI). First Nations’ support has assisted the association’s “Farming for the Working Class” project that enables Native Hawaiian homestead families to start actively farming their fallow land to grow fresh produce for themselves and the community. The program consists of hands-on farm training, paired with classroom-based learning and business training. Funding for this project and video was generously provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
