Former Samoan meteorologist focuses on his passion for farming

Tuiafiso went from government executive to being this year’s taro farmer of the year, finishing first for best taro and best ta’amu at the annual Samoa Agriculture Show.

Even though he had a long career in the public service as a meteorologist, the dedicated farmer kept the weekends free for his real passion, which is farming.

“Sitting in the office all day long is boring”, he said.
