Local and Sustainable Gardening on the Big Island
Chef Ellard joins Permaculture Guru Scott Laaback, as they gather food for a Hawaiian Harvest Feast they are cooking. Ulu (breadfruit), coconut, tulsi basil, and a lot of other locally and sustainably grown fruits and vegetables are harvested as Scott shows Ellard and Bailey around the garden he manages at Kalani Honua in the Puna District of the Hawai'i Island. Scott discusses the future of agriculture and permaculture principles that can allow future generations to grow food with less impact to the environment, more nutrients and flavor. These crops can also help Hawai'i to become more food independent.
Chef Ellard's mission is to bring you authentic local food and travel adventures from around the U.S. and the world. The Culinary Edge TV also highlights the new food consciousness that is emerging about the importance of eating food with quality ingredients. And eating as a way to understand other cultures, connect us back with nature, with ourselves and other human beings.
