ʻĀina

That Which Feeds us

"ʻĀina" (pronounced "eye-nah") means, "that which feeds us" in the Hawaiian language. The film highlights a simple yet effective path for addressing some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai - and the entire world. That may sound like an outstanding claim, but as AINA vividly illustrates, such is the power of agriculture and consumer choices for people and the planet.

"When we look at agriculture globally, it is the largest interface between humans and the environment. Agriculture is either going to make us or break us." --Don Heacock, Biologist, from ʻĀina
