UHWO Team Earns Aquaponics Prizes

Paige Takeya

It’s one thing to grow vegetables in a backyard garden. It’s another entirely to transform that action into a community-wide industry. But that’s exactly what UH-West Oahu-affiliated Ho’oulu Pacific aims to do with its Waimanalo Aquaponics project, which won top honors and $12,000 at Chaminade University’s Hogan Entrepreneurs/American Savings Bank Non-Profit Business Plan Competition in April.

“It meant a lot to us to be recognized locally and to be chosen as the best out of a great slate of nonprofit teams that were there, with very innovative projects,” said co-founder and UHWO student David Walfish. The team also won $25,000 as a finalist in the national Agricultural Innovation Prize at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in April.
