Group launches Web site dedicated to Big Island food sustainability
The Hawai'i Homegrown Food Network has launched a Web site, http://hawaiihomegrown.net, dedicated to building a "local and sustainable food economy" on the Big Island.
Since early 2009 the network has produced a monthly newsletter chronicling events, Web site resources, reports about island groups' activities, and announcements related to local food sustainability and security.
The new Web site builds on that and includes an events calendar, resource lists, and a blog. The site also features a community page where home growers, farmers, and wholesalers to retailers, restaurants, support organizations, and consumers can interact with each other.
