Project Grant Library

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!

Peace and Sustainability Garden

Kaiser High School, Oʻahu

From petitioning for use of their future garden site to preparing the land, performing agricultural experiments, and learning about waste responsibility, the “Peace and Sustainability Garden” allowed Kaiser High School students to use their imaginations, innovate, and have a little faith in themselves and each other to realize the value of failures in successes, and a sense of purpose and responsibility. The end result is a amazing scenic peaceful garden area.
