ʻĀINA Gardens Ready for Spring!
February 04, 2020
‘ĀINA program schools participated in Spring Garden Parties in January to prepare their school gardens for the new year. Thanks to the help of parents, teachers, families, and volunteer groups like the Kahuku High School Varsity Soccer Team, the BYU RM Club, and the Laie YSA 14th Ward, our learning gardens are in great shape for students to continue hands-on garden-based education. This semester, Kindergarteners will explore edible plant parts, Grade 1 will learn about companion planting, Grade 4 will continue to care for their Hawaiian garden and plant native plants on campus, and Grade 5 will embark on a Scientific Garden unit! Mahalo to all of Garden Party volunteers who continue to help our gardens thrive!
