KCC Students Attend Pamantasan Conference

Students from Kauai Community College's Pamantasan Club attended the annual Pamantasan Conference at the University of Hawaii-Hilo Campus on April 12th, 2013. The theme this year was "Back to the Farm! Our roots in sustainable practice." 

Students attended various workshops on the impacts of climate change and invasive species, food relationships, shifting to a sustainability consciousness, vermicomposting, permaculture/edible landscaping, and more.

During lunch, students were treated to a "Glimpse into Filipino Culture through Fashion." The trip to the Big Island was a first for the majority of the club's members so after the conference, the students went on a tour of the island that included a visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a night in Kailua-Kona, and many stops along the way.
