Pu’u Kukui Elementary School and Waihe’e Elementary School
Cynthia has BA Degrees in Agriculture, Food and Sustainability and in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Production. She started with Grow Some Good in 2016.
My goal for the gardens this year is to grow more, harvest more, and share more.
What I’m really looking forward to: Teaching in the shade structure that was built over the summer at Pu’u Kukui. When it rains or when it’s really hot the students now have a place to sit and take a break.
My favorite thing about working with kids is: teaching them the power of growth and watching them grow with their plants.
I’m looking forward to becoming a coordinator for a new school. I’m excited to meet the new community at Waihe’e and grow together.
My favorite thing about gardens is: how it creates a sense of community. It brings people together to work for a greater good.
My favorite fruits that grow on Maui are lilikoi and mango.
