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!

Growing Cherry Tomatoes, Herbs and Lettuce

Bright Beginning Preschool, Hauʻula, Oʻahu

Bright Beginning Preschool reports that “this project was a huge success with the teachers and the children. The teachers have been supportive with encouraging the students to water the plants and the children have loved planting seeds, watering and watching things grow.” They recently harvested the lettuce they were growing and served it to the students with some dressing. The children enjoyed it so much, not a single leaf was left. “It was so exciting. Thank you so much for the grant!”
