Hi. I'm Michael Pilarski and I was touring around the Kaua`i and Hawai`i islands in April and May, 2018, looking at agroforestry systems. In this video, I'm going to show you what agroforestry systems look like; what characterizes them. I'm thrilled that I get to do it with my good friend Paul Massey who is the manager and steward of the splendid Kaua`i Food Forest.
