Oʻahu PDE3 ʻĀINA In Schools Curriculum Trainings for Educators Class of 2019!

July 31, 2019

Congratulations to all 48 of our teacher participants from 28 schools for completing our ʻĀINA In Schools PDE3 courses in nutrition, gardening and composting in partnership with the Windward Academy for CTE! A highlight of the year included the We Grow Hawaiʻi conference and student garden project showcase. Our field trips to farms and established agriculture programs including loʻi at Kākoʻo ʻŌʻiwi, Leilehua High School Natural Resources CTE Agricultural Learning Center, and Sweet Land Farm were exciting, informational, and inspirational. It has been a pleasure to learn alongside this particularly motivated cohort of teachers. If you are interested in deepening your practice of ʻāina based education (and have a lot of fun too) use this link to be notified when official DOE registration opens! Mahalo to the many programs, farms, and schools that have shared their space and knowledge with this year’s cohort of educators.
