ʻĀINA In Schools … Growing at Home!

September 02, 2020

We have been busy creating ʻĀINA Videos which complement the ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum and are excited for you to see them! While the videos arenʻt quite ready yet, stay tuned they will be soon!  
Although this school year will be different, the ʻĀINA staff is still here to support our ʻĀINA Schools in a variety of ways. Ms. Lily Utaʻi Gr. 3 teacher from Blanche Pope Elementary School distributed grow kits to her students which included kalo huli harvested from the Kōkua Learning Farm! As part of Haleʻiwa Elementary Schoolʻs rededication of their library to Pilialoha, Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation assisted in establishing a māla experiment! Five small plots of kalo were planted in different places around the entrance to see how they grow in different environments. Huli seen here were planted by a small group of students. Mahalo for all of our ʻĀINA schools and teachers who are committed to keeping students engaged with ʻĀINA! 

Bring ʻĀINA educational opportunities to your home by starting a home garden! Check out our How to Plant a Garden at Home blog and our ʻĀINA How-Toʻs, which include one sheets on How to Build a Raised Garden Bed, How to Test Your Garden Soil, How to Plant Seeds, and more!
