A new edible classroom at Kahului Elementary School has sprouted from the passion, enthusiasm and collaboration of an awe-inspiring group of educators and volunteers.
First grade teachers attended a recent school garden tour and put their inspiration into action. The whole grade level is applying outdoor learning as part of their new curriculum-based school garden program.
Together we created soil nutrient building systems in each bed – while talking about lessons on carbon, nitrogen, decomposers and microorganisms. The awesome garden dig in ended with a beautiful community picnic under the shade trees, talking story and appreciating all the good things growing.
Mahalo nui loa to Maui School Garden Network, Hui Malama Learning Center, ISI Irrigation, Ace Hardware and all the volunteers, students and families who are creating an amazing gift of growth and prosperity for keiki and community.
