Na Kupu Mana Olana (Seeds of Hope) is a documentary that tells the story of Hawaii’s return to local and traditional methods of growing food within the context of the state’s growing food insecurity.
According to the film, “for over 1,000 years the Hawaiian people produced enough food to support an estimated population of one million. Today, 85% of our food is imported. If current trends continue, Hawaii’s last agricultural lands will be gone by 2040.”
Seeds of Hope offers an in-depth look at the history and future of Hawaii’s agriculture. The film includes interviews with more than 50 farmers, ranchers, scientists and educators who provide a wealth of information about Hawaii’s agricultural history and an inspiring vision for our future.
