Teachers from Hawai’i public schools can apply for Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Project Grants to help advance their environmental education goals. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!

Kolea Gardens Project

Enchanted Lake Elementary School

The PreK & Kindergarten students at Enchanted Lake Elementary are learning life and earth science through gardening. The Kolea Gardens Project enables each class to have a garden outside their classrooms, where they conduct observations and experiments to meet Hawaiʻi Content and Performance Standards in science, language arts, mathematics and/or fine arts.
