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!

From Field to Table

Island Pacific Academy, Oʻahu

Island Pacific Academy 1st graders explored how food makes it to their table during this project. Each student had their own container to observe their own plants. By comparing their individual plants with the variety of plants that were planted in the schoolʻs three large garden beds, the students used authentic real world plant observations, as well as, exercises in higher thinking skills.
