The Mayor’s Office of Economic Development will host an informational meeting on a proposed expansion of the Kula Agricultural Park on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Kula Community Center.

Kula Ag Park. PC: County of Maui, OED.

The County of Maui recently received a $5 million appropriation from the State of Hawaiʻi, with a $1 million match from the County of Maui, to expand the Kula Ag Park onto former HC&S sugar land.

The meeting is open to all types of farmers: conventional, biotech, organic, hydroponic, greenhouse and livestock operations. Both professional farmers and new farmers are welcome to attend.

A poll will be conducted with each attendee to determine the expectations for lot size, farming method, crop type, and water usage that potential farmers would be proposing.
