Garden Coordinator and Curriculum Advisor
Kihei Elementary School
Jadda has a BS in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, and is currently working on an MS in Environmental Studies. She has worked for Grow Some Good since August 2017.
My goal for my garden this year is continue with the goals and progress that were made in the years past, while remaining open to new thoughts and visions for the garden in the years ahead. Allowing for it to become what the school and community envision it to be.
What I’m really looking forward to: learning more about is the Hawaiian language, culture and native plant varieties.
My favorite thing about working with kids is: I learn just as much, if not more, from them as they do from me. They are wonderful teachers.
My favorite thing about gardens is: the connection that happens between people and the Earth, which ideally leads to the cultivation of healthy food, soil, bodies, communities and environment.
My favorite fruit or vegetable that grows on Maui is an avocado.
‘A‘ohe hana nui ke alu ‘ia.
No task is too big when done together by all.
