As the Director of the State Department of Agriculture, Scott Enright knows Hawaii Ag is facing some daunting challenges. But he also sees the opportunities. An estimated 88% of Hawaii's food comes from imports. If Hawaii households spent just $65 a month on locally grown fruits and vegetables, it would generate over $300 million for our island economy. The increased demand would create hundreds of new jobs, put more of Hawaii's ag lands into production, and create a healthier, more self-sufficient State. Getting there won't be easy, and it can't happen unless more people take action and participate.
