Regenerating Paradise: TerViva

For the third episode of Regenerating Paradise, we had the pleasure of chatting with Will Kusch from Maui's rapidly growing ag start-up, TerViva. With offices in HawaiÊ"i, California, and Florida, TerViva grows a hardy orchard crop called pongamia.

Pongamia is a non-GMO crop that can be grown with little or no irrigation, and produces oilseeds that are processed into oil for biofuel, plant protein for animal feed or biogas, and biomass for baseload electricity generation. TerViva's mission is transforming distressed former plantation lands into productive sources of protein and renewable bioenergy through pongamia cultivation.
