Indigenous Crop Biodiversity Festival Opening Ceremony

The Indigenous Crop Biodiversity Festival 2016 is a unique and extraordinary event that will bring together participants from around the globe to experience a week of inspiring actions, workshops, site visits, special lectures, films, music, art, food and celebration around some of the most pressing conservation and sustainability issues of our time. The ICBF will showcase Maui County’s unique role as a center for traditional Hawaiian crop biodiversity conservation in the state, as well as community-based efforts to return this heritage to farm and table.  It will also bring equal attention to Maui Nui’s challenges and successes in conservation, invasive species control, sealevel rise mitigation and renewable energy efforts.
