Started in 2016, the We Grow Hawai‘i Youth Garden Conference is a student-led conference for grades K-8, where students share about their school garden experiences through individual or group project presentations, or hands-on activities. This is the first Hawaiʻi school garden conference that gives young students a voice. In 2016, thirty students from nine schools on Oahu participated in person. Short video presentations from students on the outer Hawaiian Islands as well as the Marshall Islands were also featured, and school garden tours were offered earlier in the day through the Kōkua Hawai‘i Foundation's ‘ĀINA In Schools Program. Planning for the 2017 conference is currently underway and you can view updates via this link https://sites.google.com/a/iolani.org/wegrowhawaii/2017-conference
