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!

Pono Ponic Project

ʻEwa Makai Middle School, Oʻahu

ʻEwa Makai Middle School Students’ Pono Ponics Project focused on the significance of being green as students built an understanding of environmental awareness and sustainability. While studying plant growth in their gardens and aquaponics systems, the students thought of numerous paths and outcomes and how their Pono Ponics Project contributes to the betterment of their school environment, as well as, their ʻEwa community.
