We’re excited about new school garden programs launching on the West Side in collaboration with Maui School Garden Network and generous support from Chef Nabavi, Makana Aloha Foundation and Ulupono Initiative. School garden programs are sprouting up this month at Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary School and Maui Preparatory Academy. Students are composting, preparing soil for new beds and planting seeds for their new edible classrooms.

We’ll keep posting to this album with more photos from all the good things growing in these schools.  Next stop — Lahaina Intermediate School… Stay tuned 🙂
