COMMISSION HIGHLIGHT

State Climate Commission member and Senator Mike Gabbard shares a message to inspire people to garden. A message from him:

“Aloha e friends and Happy Earth Day 2021! I was recently interviewed by Blue Zones Hawai‘i about how and why my wife and I started a garden, so in honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d share a clip with you ;)”
