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!

Nutrition Garden Project

Waimānalo Elementary School

The 4th - 6th graders at Waimānalo Elementary School planted a garden to bring Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation’s ʻĀINA in Schools hands-on nutrition lessons outside of the classroom. Teacher Catilin Tillotson took the ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum Training for Educators course and used KHF Mini-Grant funding to purchase tools, seedlings, and other garden supplies to bring the curriculum to life and focus messaging around “close to the source” foods.
