    I submitted our video link via Vimeo through the reply email to this site. If this is not the correct site or procedure,please let me know. I submitted “Empowering our communities” however, we also fit into the Preserving the aina category as we are a small farm operation of teaching families in the method of Natural Farming. Do I need to choose “one” category to enter?? Mahalo.
