About the Author
Craig Elevitch has been an educator in tropical agroforestry since 1993. Craig’s internationally recognized publications and workshops have guided thousands in becoming more proficient in ecological food production, agroforestry, and reforestation. In addition to working directly with dozens of farmers, he has facilitated numerous agroforestry workshops in the Pacific, with over 7,000 producers and resource professionals participating since 1993. His agroforestry publications have garnered millions of downloads. These include Agroforestry Guides for Pacific Islands (2000), Traditional Trees of Pacific Islands (2006), Specialty Crops for Pacific Islands (2011), and Agroforestry Landscapes for Pacific Islands (2015), all of which promote diverse agricultural systems that are environmentally and ecologically regenerative. He is also co-director of Ho‘oulu ka ‘Ulu—Revitalizing Breadfruit and agroforestry director of the Pacific Regional Breadfruit Initiative, projects founded in 2010 to restore breadfruit agroforests in Pacific Island landscapes.
Dr. Diane Ragone is Director of the National Tropical Botanical Garden’s Breadfruit Institute, created in 2003 to promote the conservation, study, and use of breadfruit for food and reforestation.

She is Affiliate Graduate Faculty at the University of Hawaii in Tropical Plant & Soil Sciences and Ecology, Evolution, & Conservation Biology, and received a MS and PhD in Horticulture from UH. She is co-director of the Ho‘oulu ka ‘Ulu project to revitalize ‘ulu in Hawaii. Dr. Ragone is author of over 100 publications on breadfruit, horticulture, and native Hawaiian plants.
