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!

Solar Panels on the Garden

Montessori School of Maui

With the help of a KHF grant, the Montessori School of Maui’s Koa Class designed and built solar-powered panels for their vermicomposting tea brewer. The “Solar Panels on the Garden (SPOG)” project gave the 7th and 8th grade students to opportunity to learn about off-grid photovoltaic systems and construction, a wealth of experiences in scientific investigation, organic gardening practices, and sustainability principles. The PV System will serve the student body for years to come. Congratulations to teacher Scott Lacasse and the Koa Class students and leaders on your excellent project.
