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!

Conservation Station Project

Moloka'i High School

Molokai High School’s 8th grade students planted an array of almost two dozen native plant species in their successful “Conservation Station.” With the installation of an irrigation system and with the creation of museum quality markers, the project is providing an excellent opportunity to educate the school community about the importance of native plants and the impacts of non-native and invasive species. Students are also further learning to identify and learn the cultural uses for the native plants.
