See the School Garden at Lahaina Intermediate School
Take a “virtual tour” of the Grow Some Good school garden at Lahaina Intermediate School, featured in the video below. This piece was created by students as part of the PBS Hawaii news show HIKI NŌ.
“We Can All Work Together”
The video features many of the students, faculty and staff that support the garden. School Principal, Stacy Bookland, says the garden has taught her:
“we can all work together to contribute to something positive, not onlyin our community, but in our bodies, in our minds, and in the growthof our students.”
Teachers also chime in, explaining how they see the garden benefiting youth by reinforcing classroom lessons, while at the same time giving them life-long skills that can increase their self-sufficiency. Their comments demonstrate school gardens have a positive impact on academics and learning.
Lots of good things are growing at Lahaina Intermediate School – Take a look!
