Teachers from Hawai’i public schools can apply for Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Project Grants to help advance their environmental education goals. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!

ʻĀINA Nutrition

Keone'ula Elementary School

After being trained to use the ʻĀINA In Schools curriculum, Keoneʻula teachers Tarynn Firestone and Tasha Firestone shared the lessons with their Grade 2 and 6 students. The keiki gained valuable nutrition insights as they enjoyed delicious close to the source snacks and poi smoothies. Reviewing nutrition label facts, they gained awareness on how food choices impact our well-being and were encouraged to make mindful decisions about their food choices.
