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!

Pukalani’s Project Based Learning Garden

Pukalani Elementary School, Makawao, Maui

A team of Pukalani Elementary School 2nd graders used the Design Thinking process to do a redesign of their learning garden to improve their garden class experience. In addition to solutions around adding soil amendments, irrigation, and storage of garden tools, the students created a Farmstand as a fundraiser to help cover ongoing garden costs. "The students were so excited to help decide the needs of their gardens and see the improvements though via the KHF Mini-Grant!"
