Thirty-five Oʻahu DOE teachers participated in the first ʻĀINA Farm to School Field Trip for Educators of the school year. We visited Waipahu Intermediate’s Natural Resources and Future Farmers of America (FFA) Program. Teachers learned how to make a standing hydroponics system and planted different varieties of seeds and kalo huli. We then made our way to the ahupuaʻa of Waiawa to a loʻi called Kuhiawaho
. We learned about the moʻolelo of the place, worked in the loʻi, and cooled off in the healing springs of ʻEwa.
ʻĀINA Farm to School Field Trips for Educators are fun and educational opportunities for educators, docents, and parents to visit ʻĀINA schools and field trip destinations that promote Agricultural Literacy.
Join us at our next ʻĀINA Farm to School Field Trip for Educators on Saturday, November 18th! We will visit Waikīkī School and learn about their ʻĀINA In Schools Program as well as their Waikīkī Food Farm. Register today via bit.ly/1920F2SFT
