IS IT SAFE TO TRAVEL TO HAWAII? ABSOLUTELY! MORE INFO…

Update on the Hawaii Horticulture Industry

Mahalo to those of you who have expressed your thoughts and concerns for the Hawaii horticulture community. The Hawaii Export Nursery Association is devastated to report the volcanic eruption has impacted some of our Hawaiian-grown foliage and floral growers. Multiple farms have been completely lost to the lava, as well as the homes of our friends and family. We are tirelessly working together with the generous support of county, state and federal representatives, agencies, and industry members to recover from this destruction.

Despite the devastation, Hawaii is very much open for business. Less than 2% of the Big Island’s southeast side has been affected by the eruption. Most nurseries are unaffected, and we still have a vast array of plants and flowers available for purchase. Hawaii needs your support and business more than ever, and the Big Island remains a wonderful and safe place to visit. HENA’s annual MIDPAC Horticultural Conference and Expo will take place July 26-28, 2018 at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, which is located over 75 miles away from any volcanic activity. Please join us to show your support and witness the Aloha spirit first-hand, as we work together toward our industry’s continued growth and success.
