Mahalo for your interest in garden-based learning.
Garden Educational Material
In selecting our platform, we have made some exciting changes. We are going to use our own website where we can maintain security and utilize a well-established learning management system. While we are still putting up all the lessons, many are available for use already.
Features of the Learning System:
The system will track your completion of courses. This will really help us identify what is being used. By nature, lessons are meant to be taken sequentially, but that is not absolutely required.
Weʻve moved our videos to Vimeo, instead of YouTube for better security.
One change weʻve made is to make the courses accessible to students; to access they will need to register. We hope to do some special student projects in the future. They can see the progress and access all the material from home. Of course, this is optional.
Teachers can still download everything for use in your own classroom or learning management system on a lesson by lesson basis.
All users will need to register and sign in to use the platform.
Soil Science and Plant Science courses are available! We are currently working on two new courses:
Grow Kits through our Kumu Mea Kanu project are available for Quarter 3! We are creating a new set of kits coming soon:
- K-1st – Garden Art Kit
- 2nd-3rd – Chef Kit
- 4th-5th – Hawaiiana Kit
- 6th-8th – Sustainability Kit
