Malia has a BS in Mass Communications and Journalism, and a Master’s degree in Non Profit Management. She has over 20 years of fundraising experience, and started with Grow Some Good in 2015.
My goal for the school gardens this year is to keep them well-funded, with adequate supplies, staff time and materials, in order to optimize the fun, curiosity and learning in our outdoor classrooms.
I’m really looking forward to: the enhancement of our current lessons to align even more closely with curriculum standards, to better support teachers and have even more significant learning outcomes for students.
My favorite thing about working with kids is: their willingness to try new things.
My favorite thing about gardens is: witnessing the magic of growing things. From a small seed, to a sprout, a plant, a tree, and then harvesting buckets of fruit. Simply amazing.
My favorite fruit or vegetable that grows on Maui: it’s a tie between lilikoi and lychee. Ok, lilikoi.
