  • The Maui School Garden Network is a non-profit organization created to encourage and facilitate sharing of school garden information across Maui County. Its work is developing a greater sense of food self-reliance and nutrition education among Maui County’s keiki.

It helps raise future farmers and food entrepreneurs. It incorporates lessons in composting, the recycling of food, and green waste as a resource.

Kaua‘i

  • For 20 years now, Waipā Foundation has worked with the community to manage the 1,600 acre ahupua’a of Waipa, located on the north shore of Kaua’i. Waipa provides youth programs, workshops and group visits that feature transformative, hands-on learning. Waipā welcomes learners of all ages as we explore how native Hawaiian values and practices apply to modern life. In understanding that it is a multigenerational project, they provide youth programs, workshops and group visits that feature transformative, hands-on learning.
