Group Description

Our Mission Statement:

"Big Island Self Sufficiency (BISS) shares knowledge, problems and solutions on sustainable living, gardening and farming techniques. We encourage developing levels of essential and efficient food production in our own yards and farms and in our use of food and energy on Hawaii Island in order to decrease our mutual dependency on outside sources"

Code of Conduct Statement:

Respect - No flaming, abuse or intimidation. If you disagree, don't criticize the person, present your alternate point of view in a considerate manner.

Politics / Activism - You can briefly share items that are likely to be of interest within the context of our Mission Statement, but keep the posting to 200 words or less and use your posting to list links to find more information off this board

Consideration - When replying to a post please follow the guidelines and clip the bulk of the text on the post you are replying to. You can leave the original poster's name and a sentence or two, if it is relevant to what you are responding. Trimming saves a lot of time when members are reading posts, and makes those with slow ISP connections or expensive mobile only data plans to afford to keep in the loop (not everyone has high speed unlimited data plans available)

Moderators - Our moderators are volunteers, they are there to keep things on topic, pleasant, and relevant. They apply the mission statement and policies of the group to the daily postings. They make every effort to be prompt, courteous and fair. Please remain patient and respond with equal respect.
