ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum Trainings for Educators
February 16, 2018
Over 50 Oʻahu and Maui educators representing 24 schools and organizations participated in the spring ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum Trainings for educators. Highlights for teachers included lessons from the Grade 3 composting curriculum where we made and used bokashi, a Japanese style of anaerobic composting utilizing beneficial microorganisms to ferment food scraps. Also, teachers engaged in hands-on cooking stations with ‘ĀINA Garden and Nutrition lesson recipes using fresh, local produce harvested from the school gardens. Together we made palula (sauteed ‘uala leaves), kōʻele palau, lilikoʻi & banana sorbet, and more. Mahalo to all our partners and educators that made this year’s ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum Trainings for Educators a success!
