Contest Judge: Eric Weinert Sr.

Eric Weinert Sr. has been a leader in Hawaii agriculture since the 1970’s when he started Plant It Hawaii fruit tree nursery in Kurtistown with his sister to provide quality grafted trees to the local community.

His agricultural career evolved to eventually becoming the General Manager of Calavo Hawaii Operations, and during this time was instrumental in bringing in Gil Carandang to hold a conference spreading Natural Farming to the Hawaii Papaya industry and has been a long time advocate for regenerative agriculture.

Eric went to Korea to attend a seminar and tour offered by Master Cho in 2009, and was certified as an Advanced KNF Instructor in 2011 by Master Cho.

Today, Eric is retired, yet continues to farm regeneratively on his home plot, and wishes to help the youth achieve the reality of better agriculture for Hawaii.
