How simply changing our perspective of our support of farming could reverse the decline in new farmers and provide us with more community-appropriate and viable agriculture

Steven Chiang is co-founder of GoFarm Hawaii, Hawaii’s premier beginning farmer training program working to enhance our food security and economy by increasing the number of local agricultural producers. GoFarm Hawaii is an innovative role model for other programs that help turn the Ag-Curious into successful commercial farmers. Steven is also Director of the Agribusiness Incubator Program at the University of Hawaii, and has contributed to hundreds of businesses in a wide range of industries across the U.S. in his career as a leader, mentor and management technology consultant.
