4th Annual We Grow Hawaiʻi Conference
April 03, 2019
The 4th Annual We Grow Hawaiʻi student-led school garden conference brought together students, parents, educators, and community partners to celebrate school gardens across Oʻahu through the voice of students! Students worked in teams to prepare a healthy, brunch using farm-fresh local produce donated by Aloun Farms. We enjoyed a feast of zucchini pancakes, curry fried rice, bean salad, kōʻelepālau, energy bites, and citrus and herb flavored water. Students of Blanche Pope Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, Island Pacific Academy, Kailua Intermediate, Kāʻohao Elementary, and SEEQS presented about their school garden experiences, ʻāina-based education, and sustainability projects in their schools. Mahalo to Island Pacific Academy, ʻIolani School, Kamehameha Schools, Blue Zones, Hawaiʻi Farm to School Hui, and KHF's ʻĀINA In Schools program for hosting another inspiring We Grow Hawaiʻi conference!
