Event description

Description

For the first time in history, breadfruit is being recognized for its commercial potential and as a nutritionally superior local food with endless possibilities for creative dishes and products. Growing breadfruit together with several crops can improve overall production, increase yields and profits, and reduce the risks of weather extremes.

Workshop participants will learn how to design, establish, and maintain agroforestry systems that include breadfruit. Hands-on exercises during the workshop will prepare participants to apply new skills in planning using methods developed by the workshop presenters. Participants will also learn about creating dishes and products with breadfruit and other crops grown together with breadfruit.

This workshop is presented with support from Western SARE for agricultural professionals, growers, processors, entrepreneurs, policymakers, educators, extension agents, and others interested in regenerating breadfruit.

This groundbreaking workshop builds upon the time-tested methods of Pacific Islanders, bringing traditional knowledge into a modern context while retaining the cultural roots of breadfruit. We look forward to very full and rewarding workshops.
