ROOTS ~ RESILIENCE ~ ROMANCE is an event to stand for women and climate justice. Women are key to sustainable solutions. When women farmers are empowered, we will see food security. Join us to learn more about the impacts of climate change and solutions for a sustainable future. Share your message on a poster, participate in our social media campaign, and receive a FREE Native plant (food, medicinal, and love plants will be available), taro huli, or seeds to cultivate with your special someone. Weaving and other cultural demonstrations will be showcased.
