Chefs + Garden + Kids = Inspiring Maui School Garden Video!

This video by Emmy winning photographer Jess Craven tells the story of Grow Some Good and their work with a Maui school garden that has grown from 3 box beds to nearly a quarter acre edible schoolyard and learning lab in the heart of campus. This is an edited version of the original segment, which aired on Jess’ show “Self Made in Hawaii.”

Kihei Elementary School garden – located in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii – serves as a palate for more than 850 students to grow, harvest and taste their creations while supporting curriculum taught in the classroom. Local chefs also support the garden through fundraisers, recipe workshops and harvest parties. The story shows how kids get excited about eating fresh fruits and vegetables when they grow it and prepare it themselves. Kihei Elementary School garden is an ongoing project of Grow Some Good.
