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!

Urban Garden Expansion

Huakailani School for Girls, Kailua, Oʻahu

Huakailani School for Girls, in the heart of Kailua town expanded their schoolʻs already existing urban garden, linked their waste-free bokashi, and further utilized their worm composting program. The harvests increased student vegetable consumption, as the students learned to cook and eat their produce on a weekly basis.
