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!

Gardening Nutrition Health Project

ʻĀina Haina Elementary School, Oʻahu

ʻĀina Haina Elementary School’s innovative “Gardening Nutrition Health Project” granted Cheryl Samuel’s 5th grade students new-found knowledge on gardening and nutrition. While planning, building, and planting their “Tower Garden,” students tracked vegetable growth and valuable nutrition lessons. The innovative garden design gave students excitement to inspire healthy behaviors and well-being within their families.
