In pt. 2 of our interview with Jenny Pell, she focuses on the local food economy. We talk about what it could look like to create thrivelihoods for people - jobs & ways of life that are financially sustainable, while also in balance with our natural resources & the needs of the Maui community. Most of what Jenny talks about is very relevant to any community that wants to increase their local food production & resilience.
In this episode, we hear more highlights from the Mālama ‘Āina Report, especially its sections on the economy. We talk about about the resiliency of cooperative models, affordable housing, farmers' markets & crafts markets, the opportunities of agritourism, & some of the challenges Maui faces in order to implement these ideas.
This episode is one of a series called Re-envision Maui, about an ongoing transition on the island of Maui. If you would like more background on this series, we suggest you checkout the episode entitled Re-envision Maui - Before and After Sugar.
