CONNECTING LOCAL GROWERS TO LOCAL MARKETS

Kahumana Farm Hub aggregates and distributes produce from backyard growers and small farmers on Oahu's Leeward coast.

Historically, Waianae was the food basket of Oahu. Today, Kahumana Farm Hub helps to share Waianae's native abundance at farmers' markets, restaurants and grocery stores across the island, while creating income opportunities, preventing food waste and cultivating relationships with food producers in the community.

"…it’s a resource that is helping me cuz I could go pick my ‘ulu filled tree and make eighty dollars. That’s something that was unheard of for a very long time in Wai‘anae because we did not have a hub."

HISTORY

Saleh Azizi was hired in 2017 to manage the Kahumana Farm Hub through the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant, managed by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture. The first members were acquired through weeks of knocking on doors where fruit trees flourished in the backyard. When people heard the hub could facilitate food security through its many customers it spread by word of mouth to serve 80 'ohana growers in the community.
