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!

MOMI Compost System Expansion

Montessori School of Maui

Montessori School of Maui’s keiki designed and constructed compost bins to replace their old bin frames that were falling apart. The middle schoolers are now collecting compost and selling it to the community in support of their field trip account. The MOMI Compost System Expansion Project has granted an invaluable holistic perspective in the practice of scalable agriculture and trade exchange.
