2020 Agriculture Awareness Day

Experience all that local agriculture has to offer at the 2020 Agriculture Awareness Day (Ag Day) on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, at the Hawaii State Capitol. Now in its thirteenth year, Ag Day showcases Hawaii’s diverse agricultural industry and the many partnerships that make up this thriving industry. Sixty-two exhibitors will be situated on the fourth-floor walkway of the Hawaii State Capitol from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Ag Awareness Day, which is sponsored by the Hawaii Farm Bureau, is an opportunity for policymakers and the public to learn about Hawaii’s agriculture industry and meet many of the organizations and people who supply our communities with locally grown and produced products. (See attached list for this year’s participants).

The 2020 Ag Awareness Day is being hosted by Representatives Scott Saiki, House Speaker, Richard Creagan, Chair of the House Agriculture Committee, and Lynn DeCoite, Vice-Chair of the House Agriculture Committee. Along with Mike Gabbard and Russell Ruderman, Chair and ViceChair of the Senate Agriculture and Environment Committee.

The primary goal of Ag Awareness Day is to develop a grassroots effort to support agriculture in the islands by engaging policymakers and the community in interactive educational exhibits. The exhibits will cover a wide range of Hawaii agriculture topics and help to build a greater understanding of agriculture in Hawaii and educate policymakers and the public on current issues facing the industry today.

For more information, please contact Rachele Lamosao, Director of Communications, Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation, at (808) 848-2074 or rachele@hfbf.org

The Hawaii Farm Bureau was founded in 1948 and is a statewide nonprofit organization of 1,800 farm families united for the purpose of analyzing problems and formulating action to ensure the future of agriculture thereby promoting the well-being of farming and the State's economy. HFB serves as Hawaii’s voice of agriculture to protect, advocate, and advance the social, economic and educational interest of Hawaii’s diverse agricultural community.
