I want to raise awareness to the community of Maui about the genetically modified organism topic.
The company Monsanto has been a detrimental issue in India. We, the people of Hawaii, do not want to have it coming here. Once the company starts to plant its GMO seeds in the soil, using herbicides and pesticides, it will only use those things to kill it, and even more toxic chemicals. What would you need to use those things for when we can live a sustainable life like before?
I am a Native Hawaiian and my ancestors knew how to sustain millions of people with the ahupuaa system. If we can be more educated about it, share it and plant the seed in the community, we can move on to a better Hawaii and stop Monsanto from doing GMO here.
