2023 Agriculture Awareness Day
HONOLULU – Experience all that local agriculture has to offer at the 2023 Agriculture Awareness Day on Thursday, February 9, 2023, at the Hawaii State Capitol. Now in its thirteenth year, the event showcases Hawaii’s diverse agricultural industry and the many partnerships that make up this thriving industry. 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.
The 2023 Ag Awareness Day is being co-hosted by Representatives Cedric Gates and Kristin Kahaloa and Senators Mike Gabbard and Tim Richards. They are the Chairs and Vice Chairs of the House and Senate Agricultural Committees.
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.
