The informational meeting will be held Wednesday, July 26, 2017 from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. at the Kula Community Center and is open to all types of farmers: conventional, biotech, organic, hydroponic, greenhouse and livestock operations. Professional farmers and new farmers are welcome to attend the meeting.
A poll will be conducted with each attendee to determine the expectations for lot size, farming method, crop type, and water usage that potential farmers would be proposing.
