Community Food Systems Program
Grow some good.
Community Food Systems
This program kicked off in 2020 with our support of two community gardens at the YMCA and Big Brothers, Big Sisters. With the high rate of food insecurity on Maui, we decided to expand our work and to further our mission to cultivate a healthy community by strengthening local agriculture and improving access to nutritious, affordable food.
We grow and distribute plants to people who want to learn how to grow their own food. We share information on care, growing, use and storage of many types of plants that grow well in our tropical climates.
We stick with what we do best! Build gardens and educate people (families and keiki) on growing food! We hope to integrate some kitchen/nutrition programs to demonstrate how to prepare food that grows in our gardens.
