This Week's Speaker
Owner's Vision of the Grand Naniloa Hotel Hilo - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Co-owner of the Grand Naniloa, Ed Bushor, had never been to Hilo.  He has since fallen in love with Hilo as a place more authentic than anywhere he has been.  His business plans are predicated on this heart for this place.
Natural Farming 101
A once boring and lifeless median in downtown Hilo now thrives with the fruits of the natural farming method.  Drake Weinert, a farmer and teacher, explained how natural farming creates an environment favorable to promote beneficial fungus and microbes. The microbes create the fertility.
