One of our clients, Hōkū Nui Maui, is using regenerative agricultural practices to restore agricultural lands in upcountry Maui. Regenerative agriculture is a farming process that works in harmony with animals and nature, restoring soil and building carbon sequestration. Hōkū Nui’s techniques involve planting native habitat, fruit and nut trees, as well as canoe and row crops. They are also using rotational cattle grazing, caravans of roaming chickens, and bee-centered beekeeping to help promote pollination.
