Grow Some Good w/ Kihei Community Association

The school garden movement is thriving throughout Hawaii and creating hands-on educational programs for students of all ages. On Tuesday, March 20, Grow Some Good  gave a special presentation about programs that teach local students and their families to grow nutritious, organic fruits and vegetables – on any budget, in any community or living space.

Nio Kindla, Kathy Becklin, Kerry Wilkins and Kirk Surry – co-founders of Grow Some Good – Educational School Gardens on Maui (www.GrowSomeGood.org), were guest speakers at the Kihei Community Association meeting, sharing gardening tips and recipes, discussing the outlook for regional school and community gardens, how to start a nonprofit to fund your projects, guerilla gardening and more.

Project: Plant It! students and volunteers shared ready-to-transplant organic and heirloom garden starts and gave advice on caring for them. Attendees learned about South Maui-specific gardening tips and sampled healthy snacks made fresh from Kihei El and Lokelani school garden produce, during this student-driven outreach project to inspire more back yard and hui gardens!
