Media Messengers

We are grateful for our media sponsors, Maui No Ka Oi Magazine, and MauiTime, who are helping us spread the word about Taste of School Gardens. With their help, we anticipate another sold-out event this year!

Lighting the Place Up

A very special mahalo to Epic Lighting for helping us create a gorgeous ambiance after the sun sets. This is our fourth year working with this top-notch company  – Hawaii’s first and only green business certified, 100% eco-friendly lighting company.

Keeping it Local

Local Harvest  has volunteered their services in a big way – they are  coordinating all of the produce  donated from local Maui farmers and bringing it together in time for the chefs to prepare for Saturday night. Mahalo for sharing your time and expertise in sourcing local produce for this event.

Mahalo!

Taste of School Gardens is Grow Some Good’s premier fundraising event. Our programs are hands-on, outdoor learning experiences that cultivate curiosity about natural life cycles, connect students to their food sources, and inspire better nutrition choices. In addition to helping establish food gardens and living science labs in local schools, we provide resources and curriculum support through community partnerships in agriculture, science, food education and nutrition. Your support helps make this happen. Mahalo!
