I attended the Mahi’ai: A Short-Film Collective which is a film festival to promote local, small-scale agriculture in Hawai’i. It was organized by a group of recent UH college grads to engage and connect people in the community and talk about our food…

Counting down to our first harvest next week our class decided to practice harvesting and put a CSA bag together. Each of us in the class contributed a crop or two to the “pretend” CSA bag and it turned out to be a thing of beauty.

Thursdays are GoFarm AgSchool lecture night in the classroom. But we always make time to inspect our plot right before class. And tonight I am happy to report that the Hybrid Radish Daikon and the Snow Peas I planted on Saturday have sprouted! I am once…

Today’s theme it seems is problem solving. As I walk around my plot to do my field observation ritual, I noticed the ants crawling on my beans and around the Chinese cabbage. Ants pose a big problem to crops because they bring aphids, which feed on the…

I came back to my plot see how the my crops are doing only to find out that the beans have not yet sprouted and the snow peas are yellow with reddish spots on their leaves. The rest of the feild had weeds for me to pull and the pesky nutsedge were back in…

I installed a trellis today to accommodate the snow peas I have to transplant tomorrow. The trellis is a very simple design made up of plastic netting attached to T-posts. Our trellis will also support beans and tomatoes I intend to plant later this week.

One of my goals in AgSchool is to grow my plants with as little application of fertilizers and chemical pesticides as possible. I wanted to see how they would do with the bare minimum. So far, the front runners are the radish daikon hybrid, indigo tomato,…

I have never been more excited to come to class when I noticed that my beans have sprouted! However, some did not make it. I suspect birds were able to get to their cotyledons.

Introduction
I am a family portrait and sporting events photographer based in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I started a personal blog project called Island Chronicles which is about my outdoor adventures in Hawaii. In addition, I will feature challenging activities you can do to stay physically fit in the islands. Since I am a student in the GoFarm Hawaii program, I hope to provide useful information about growing your own food and share their mission of enhancing Hawaii’s food security and economy.

Please subscribe to the Island Chronicles newsletter to receive the latest post via email.

Mahalo for your support!
