A FOOD SUSTAINABLE HAWAII... A thriving community has deep roots in agriculture and an ability to feed its people from local harvests. WEDG is a Hawaii non-profit organization committed to providing resources for a sustainable and diverse agricultural community where every business thrives.
Hawaii's climate supports a diverse range of farm produce beyond the standard tropical varieties such as banana, pineapple, mango and papaya. The University of Hawaii's College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources has successfully grown apples, peaches and blueberries among other produce. The challenge for local farmers is economically growing sufficient crop volume to warrant a local processing facilitythat can prepare, package and distribute Hawaii grown produce according to USDA food safety standards. WEDG is focused on filling this gap to support and empower local farmers, thereby meeting our community's own basic need for food abundance and sustainability.
