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!

Aquaponics Garden Project

Seagull School, Kapolei, Oʻahu

The process of aquaponics was first explained to the teachers, then the children assisted in providing a home environment for the aquaponic fish and seedlings. Throughout the months, the students fed their fish and observed their growing plants. This Aquaponics Garden Project fit the student curriculum on insect, plant, and animal life cycles. Congratulations to Ms. Nakagawa-Soberano and students for all the positive feedback from the other teachers and parents for your wonderful hands-on classroom garden project.
