What a great day of connecting with a group of educators and volunteers sharing outdoor learning ideas and touring South / Central Maui school gardens – organized by Anne Gachuhi of Home Gardening Support Network and Lehn Huff, Maui School Garden Network.
The Feb. 4 tour featured four schools – Kihei Elementary School, Lokelani Intermediate school, Kihei Charter School and Maui Hui Malama Learning Center.
Mahalo nui to Anne, Lehn, volunteers and other visitors for making this an awesome day. Special appreciation to Private Chef and Slow Food Maui member Jana McMahon and Suzanne Cleveland Carlson for preparing a beautiful, localicious lunch. We all cleaned our plates and asked for recipes. So.. Here you go! Mahalo Chef Jana for sharing!
The school garden movement on Maui is growing strong with so many schools now incorporating outdoor learning into curricula. This is wonderful news to all of us who would like to see keiki learn about food, nature and the environment at an earlier age. Curious about all the good things growing in our schools? Visit a school garden in your neighborhood and dig in!
