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!

Kaulana Kawa

Volcano School of Arts and Sciences PCS, Hawaiʻi Island

To restore and promote the value of Native Hawaiian Plants in Hawaiʻi Island’s Kawa Dry Forest, the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences PCS students and student leaders worked with community members and local schools to mālama ʻāina with their “Kaulana Kawa Project.” They removed invasive species and restored areas with a diverse and abundant endemic and indigenous native plant community.
