The Maui County Department of Agriculture Charter Amendment was grassroots effort to support a sustainable regional system for Maui County. The primary purpose and intent of the creation of a county level Department of Agriculture is to provide advocacy and help our farmers, small businesses, community and also to help our forestry and aquaculture sectors.
