Speaking at the National Heirloom Expo

Squash and Awe is my one woman, no-till, 1/4 acre farm model that I created as a way to troubleshoot one commercial crop that failed in Hawaii. Turning to history, I as a 6th generation farmer’s daughter, I decided to use ancestral knowledge, and historic seeds to find sustainable solutions to the pest problems that caused over 95% of this crop to be imported over 3000 miles. Help me to give a motivational speech to others who are looking for ways to change our food system by using our lives.  Changing our food system…one tiny farm at a time.

My love of food and cultures have taken me around the world, dropping me into my current location in Hawaii. I have been loving cooking, photography, gardening, baking, and outdoor adventuring, since back when I was filling a Girl Scout sash with badges. My locations may change, and my activities continue to grow in number, but deep down inside, I still love curling up with a good book, squealing about in a classic car, and making stick-to-your-ribs meals out of homegrown goods.
